I did contemplate just doing the "lean on em'" method, but they've been on the car for a little while, and ain't no body got time for that.
    I have one more squeaky spring fix in mind. I'm getting scary good at getting struts off/on with my coworker using the "lean on em" method. Gonna be able to do a spring install in a few hours at this rate.

    Still crazy jealous of those coils. I gotta hold off a few months though for some =(. I was leaning towards tarmac 2s over those though, personally.

    I know they do autoX there as well, but it's pretty pricey from what I've heard.

    The road track is a lot of fun. I just can't justify it price wise this year =/

    Yeah. Some anti-seize on those camber bolts and the required deep well sockets are good investments from the start.

    Yeah, I hear you there. I can get suspension on and off the car pretty quick after last summer. I do lack the extra hand most times I'm working on the car, but once I can afford to build a garage, I know my neighbor will be there helping me as long as keep some beers in the fridge.

    I decided on the JRZ's mainly for 2 reasons: I wanted a monotube shock (not twin tube), and TiC told me they weren't confident in the AST 4150's running the high spring rates that I wanted. I also decided against haveing both compression and rebound adjustability because it seems that most who have it, set it and forget it. If you are ever in my neck of the woods, you're more than welcome to go for a ride.

    I'll have wrx_wagone's Tein Monoflex's for sale once they come back from rebuild, if anyone is interested. As JR put it, "lowest cost inverted monotube coilover you can buy".

    Sounds good man. The JRZs look nice, but it's hard to find any information on them due to the smaller market, sadly. I am curious though.

    I was leaning away from the ASTs as well, mainly due to the fact they seem a bit more "comfy" than I'd prefer. I'd like to bump back to at most stock sway bar size (or remove it) after I get coils. T2s seem to be the nicest alternative for that.

    Between coils and air tools... lots of want in this thread.

    Well, thanks to a buddy of mine and a sweet connection he has for some goodies, it looks like I'll be studying the FSM this weekend, the rear differential rebuild section in particular. Order already placed for gaskets and o-rings.

    Upgrades or repairs?

    How are those coils?
