Ok guys/gals. I will be attempting to install the Eibach Pro Kit lowering springs on the wife's 2010 XB tomorrow or Monday. I just borrowed/rented the spring compressors from Autozone and printed the TRD install instructions. Anybody want to help? Any tips/comments/ $.02 before I begin? :eek:

It's not difficult, just take your time. You've picked up a spring compressor -- perfect move :)!

Use care to position the compressor on the springs and be sure to tighten the compressor evenly. Don't toss back a beer either before or during this operation, be thinking, deliberate, and safe :)! Following spring install on the front struts, the biggest hassle is holding the strut assembly in place under the fender so that you can install the three support washers and nuts (it's not light). If your lady or a friend could give you a small hand with that, it'll make a difference :)!

The main thing with both front and back springs is to exactly follow instructions -- they're very good. You want to exactly position the rubber bushings (OE) and springs so they properly engage top and bottom. The key with this is to do it right the first time, rather than having to go back later to see what you messed up.

YEAH!!!!DONE!!! Wasn't hard at all. Total install install time: 4 Hours. But if anyone attempts this...you will need a second set of hands for when you remove and reinstall the strut assembly.

It looks great. It gave me the perfect drop and the did not affect the ride quality (at least on the street). I still have to drive it over 55 on the freeway and see how that feels.

I will post pix as soon as I figure out how...Any tips on loading pix?
