yeah...its a BIG pain.

if you honestly think you will be lowering/raising your ride twice a year i would suggest coilovers or air bags instead of basic shocks & springs. ride height adjustability is much easier that way. thumbsup

yeah, i'd go for adjustable Coilovers, they work a lot better that way.

This is why you really want to spend extra money and get coil-overs!! It makes it really easy all you need to change it is a jack and 20mins verses 2 hours and a hoist.

it cost me almost $400 to get my springs installed with allignment (at Canadian Tire, they were the cheapest place I thaught I should trust) I've been driving all winter with no problmes, I just lowered it 1.5 inches..(h&r springs) If you can do it yourself, all the power to you, but if not, it aint worth the cash - repaint stuff if you really need to...
