Yes, you do need one. You can rent one from autozone or pep boys for pretty cheap.

I'm wondering how much you lowered your ride and if you need for the the Eibach alignment kit? How much degree camber does it give 1.0, 1.5 or 2? I'm looking at H&R for they give up to 3 degrees. I'm not sure if it fits a Celica's suspension. Do you need that and do I need that? That's the question.

Just like the pics above show, you use the jack to lift the spring and strut into place. However this method is not very safe compared to using a spring compressor. Think of how much pressure the spring is under when you jack it up.. if your jack slipped and you were nearby.. OUCH! eek

VERY IMPORTANT!!! IF AFTER SECURING THE WHOLE THING WITH UPER NUT PIC#12 YOU CAN TURN THE NUT, YOU DID IT WRONG!!! CHECK PIC.18-19. FLAT AREA ON THE TOP OF THE SHOCK MUST GET INTO FLAT AREA OF THE FIRST METAL PLATE (SO AFTER YOU PUT THIS PLATE ON SILVER AREA OF THE SHOCK IT WILL MOVE WITH IT IF YOU TURN IT).IF AFTER INSTALLATION WILE YOU DRIVIN YOU HEAR THE "METAL NOZE" MOST LKELY YOU HAVE TO REDO IT AND CHECK PIC.18-19.

this is the step where you should have the spring compresser, friend hold the top plate, hands slip, plate comes up, hits friend in face, you are calling 911 to help stop the bleeding from the plate hitting them in the face, then, the lawsuits come lol

Dude I'm glad it worked for you but I can't stress enough how lucky you got on the front install how can you be sure you have all the top hardware on correctly,do us a favor and stop encouraging people to do this the wrong way. I've done this install plenty of times and I just did it again on saturday with the proper tool's and would hate to see somebody else try it your way and mess up thier car or even themselve's or somebody else.

I am simply show you guys how i did it.And it,s your chose to follow.
Proper tools... I don't think i got lucky i just follow the installation instructions.. and yeah instead of using the Spring compressor (which one i don't have) i use the jack to compress the shocks.
And one more time it was Sportlines installation and sportlines way shorter then Pro or Stock springs and it do not have lot of pressure to harm you...
And i do not ask you to do it my way.
Please take your cars to Mechanics and spend $300
I think it's just good to know that you can do some work with limited amount of tools and it's what my pictures show.
And i know that its better to have all tools you needed... But if you don't???
And front install is not hard at all you can see it your self... wave

REED AND MAKE YOUR CHOSE "BE OR NOT TO BE"IF YOU NOT SURE JUST DO NOT START THE INSTALLATION MY WAY> JUST REMEMBER THERE IS PLENTY OF MECHANICAL SHOPS WHO WILL BE GLAD TO HELP YOU $$$.

you don't need to spend $300 for someone else to do it right, you can rent a spring compressor or borrow one from a friend for very little $.

I'm not attacking you by no mean's dude I'm just concerned that some one with no clue as to what they are doing could really get hurt or do some damage by attempting your procedure, You didn't even use jack stand's that alone is dangerous enough you should never work under a car with out them.

Yeah .. It's good to know that you know how to use it... But some one just can be a complete donkey and blow his fucking head off by making mistake...
There no cure for dumbness.
I just show the one of posble ways to do the installation.
And it's so funny to see you guys telling me that you so courtesy and careful for other people and know that none of you made any pictures how to install it on the safe way.
This dude telling me that he did many suspension installations and he did not even make any attempt to post any pictures What the curtseys...
And the last one. Instead telling me how bad i am by posting this picture you guys should turn off your computers get your asses outside take the whole suspension off your car, TAKE SOME PICTURES an then put the whole shit back and TAKE PICTURES again . And simply post it here grin thumbsdown thumbsdown thumbsdown
P.S. And check installs. Donkey can kill him self on any of those projects no mater how good the installation pictures will be.
P.P.S. Hope to see your pictures soon. wave

This is my reply to what I believe you're complaining about.

I told you we closed your posted process because of a liability issue. No site Admin or Moderator condemned you for posting it.

As for you asking us to take pictures, I'll dismiss that remark because there are already enough photos in the gallery and installation section.
