    Swift Sport Lowering Springs install questions.

    I have searched hi and low, over various forums for and install write up or video. With my luck though i haven't found a darn thing that pertains to a GR chassis. Any help would be awesome, even a simple write up would be nice. I'm not a complete idiot and decently mechanically inclined, if the write up isnt in complete detail I could figure out the rest.

    Thats how i did mine, i can give you a quick guide, do rears first they take a little longer, unbolt sway bar link, unbolt control arm bolt, unbolt strut, go in the trunk and unbolt the 2 nuts for the top hat, pull the control arm down and slide the strut out. To take the spring out just undo the nut on the top of the strut, you'll need a spring compressor. For the fronts mark both bolts on the struts, one is for camber adjustment, then unbolt the 3 nuts for the top hat.

    Oh wow thats pretty quick, I figured mine will take about 2 hours. I have nothing else planned for tomorrow. I just need to rent a spring compressor and possibly some jacks.

    Just take your time, and be careful with the springs; those suckers pack a punch.
