picking up hotchkis springs tomorrow...quick question
I'm picking up the hotchkis springs with bumpstops tomorrow...and am prepping my garage tonight for the install...what SPECIAL TOOLS do I need for the install...other than a spring compressor and complete set of wrenches...
...I'm asking about an impact wrench to get the hub assembly apart or some of the bolts on top of the struts... any help is appreciated...and yes, I've been reading the tech manual in regards to the hub assemblies

I have air tools so that cuts about 30 mins out of it. do you have a long breaker bar, they sometimes work better than air tools. a second person would be great.

i read that a spring can tear right though a person if it slips out of the compressor

impact wrench makes it a lot easier... if you dont have a good breaker bar you definately need that too.
