Just be careful with the front, they are under a lot of tension, make sure the spring compressor is secure. If you have a buddy with a hydraulic press, that would work too to keep tension on the spring while removed the top cap.

NICE!! I have about 7 days left, then I graduate on the 28th. Where are you going to college?

What springs did you get? If I ever get springs I'm probably just gonna get them installed at Scikotics install day.

I'm staying in town for college. (University of Central Arkansas) I haven't figured out what I'm going to study yet.

I got the Hotchkis from xseveredveganx for $140 shipped :)

Thanks for the info. I tried to register at scionlife.com and I can't I spent the time to look and no one is registered under the name of AZ Sun Love but their system refuses to let me register using the name & or past word! Still :confused:

Anyway good to know we don't need to remove the cowl! :cheers:

Was going to ask why the installer cut the bump stops? Had issue when I was told to cut bump stops on the Mazda's I have installed suspension on in the past! Big Issues too! Mazdaspeed said don't CUT or MOD the OEM bump stops!! Trust me they were right!

Try it without the spaces in the user name or insert a _ as a space.
