Okay here is a little tid bit for anyone who plans on doing the front Ranchos with the AC lift themselves. (or just the AC lift) Everything went fine, got the struts out and compressed the coils and got them off just fine with a tool that I bought from Autozone. When my frined and I tried to compress the AC coil to put on the new shocks... We nearly broke the tool :angryfire: I am going to have a shop put the coils on the new shock and i HIGHLY RECOMMEND that everyone else do the same. It is way to hard to do that part yourself!! Everything else is pretty easy! So hopefully the sexterra will be up and running tommorow night. :ky:
one question though. are the ac coil springs designed to bow out like that or should i get my eyes checked? i held a straight edge to the spring and it seems like the middle bows out more. could be the shadow in the pic since they were taken at night with a flash.
