do it yourself, it's easy

rent a spring compression tool from crappy tire. it's $109 for the rental, but you get it ALL back when you take the tool back.

get some good sockets (or air impact if you have it avail), wrenches, allan key set, and a few hours.

it's EASY ...very very easy.

it is easy. Remember you will need an alignment.

As well as AirCompressor you will NOT be able to remove the strut mounts with a socket wrench, you can try but the piston in the strut will just spin with the bolt. You can definatately make this into a Weekend project with a case of beer... just dotn be like me and drink too much beer or you will end up putting the rear springs in the front and have to do everything all over again ... lmao good luck bud.

air compressor is not needed I did my ef twice without using one. If your talking about what I think you are all you need to do is clamp the cylinder to stop it from spinning.



I did mine lower on a honda strut..but thats if were talking about the same thing.

Not in all cases neb.
I did clamp the piston and it still wouldnt come off.

Besides if you really dont want to use a impact wrench your going to have some diffuculty removing bolts depending on if your bolts are seized. Especially the LCA's and the front forks....
