I thought the video DIY was a good idea till I realized... Is it not a good idea for a guy who needs step by step instruction on how to jack up a car to work on a car at all.

this will be very helpful for our forum members. Ian, did you do the filming? i always though Dan's voice sounded asthmatic ... i thought he has a cold whenever i speak with him on the phone. tell him it's time to quit smoking lol

excellent DIY video! i just might do the same with my next project

hey, just noticed something ... where is Dan's safety goggle lol



I always forget to wear my goggles too.... and then am too lazy to put them on.

Yes, only you'll need a spring compressor to disassemble the stock struts
