Heres a few performance shops in or around Mobile Alabama. Give them a call if you choose not to do the install yourself (I think you can handle it though). And also, don't forget, your local Chevy dealer will install springs in most cases. Just make good friends with the service manager.

I did my own in about 4 hours. It was not difficult at all using Pfadts instructions.

I'll see tomorrow. Didn't have time today. Had to buy some tools I didn't have. Including a floor jack and stands.

I'm doing it tomorrow.

Be carefull springs are very compressed and under a lot of pressure if they let go while working on they have enough power to do major major damage. Be sure your spring compressors are used properly and use extra care. You do not need to lift the engine to install the sway bars. I did not.You just need to take your time and work them in to place.

Ok. I'm kinda freaked out a little.

The top of the strut/spring assembly has about an 1/8 inch of play where they attach to the car and the bolts are tight. Am absolutely possitive it went back together the way it came apart. Any ideas?

It's really very easy once you get into it.


Well............... until now. I'm kinda lost. I got a feeling it's normal. It's gotta be.

No way in hell I will do this on my own. I am good with exhaust and intake add ons but suspensions gonna have to be done by the dealer.

Good Luck PQ! Make sure to post some new picks of the ride.

Needed to be drawn back together with the weight of the car and compressed. I was basically just tightening the bracing. Strut it's self has to be set.
