I am going to do my lift today. PRG Spacers and Deaver Mini pack in the rear. Will have the laptop in the garage for the how too's and to fire off questions.

1st one, do I need a torque wrench? If so, what size(s)?

Thanks,
Mike

Thanks I will for the next ones.
I have the space on and the bolts in the top fastened losely, having trouble lining up the bottom of the sturt with the mount, can't seem to get it to line up. the strut is hanging about 3/4" lower than the mount.
Any ideas?

I need to seperate the upper ball joint but I don't have a ball joint seperater. Greg (PRG) instructions say to tap it with a 4lb sledge (don't have) and it will pop out. I have tried with a hammer but I guess I am not hitting hard enough? Ideas? I need this off if I am to fit the strut back into position.
I know when I get the first side done the second will be a breeze!!

Yes you just need to hit it alot harder. It will be difficult with a regular hammer but it can be done. Just make sure that the nut holding them on is... either sitting lower than the bolt, OR exactly even with it. If the nut is too far up the bolt you can mushroom the bottom of the bolt and you wont be able to remove the nut.
