Hey guys new dude hear... i've been going through the lowering spring threads... and not finding the answers i was looking for... I got some DropZones 2" front 2.5" rear springs im putting them in this weekend just wanted to check before i did though on stock wheels there shouldnt be any rub right? If anyone had a pic of what the drop looks like would be perfect to so i can see what it will look like... Thx

Replacing the back end springs. Just 2 bolts. Dont even have to take off your rims. All it will do is drop the back end and you take the 2 stock springs out. Then the front take the rims off 4 bolts in engine bay then the bolts behind wheel(Cant remember how many) Make sure you have a Impact wrench it will help on this. And use a Vise grip to hold the strut. Ask That07balt. He is the one that did it. Great at working on this.

Nah man. Just need sockets/wrench vice grips to hold strut and impact wrench.

Oh i didnt read the thread so if they said to get a strut compressor then make sure you have that lol. That is very VERY important Rent it from autozone its like 50 or 60 dollars and once your done you take it back and get all your money back. Its crazy
