View Full Version : The springs are mocking me

I swear, everything that can go wrong, has gone wrong. To make a long story short, I took my SC to Modacar in Pleasanton to get my springs installed after making an appointment 2 weeks in advance and guess what, they call me 30 min later to inform me that their spring compressor is not big enough and they can't install them!!!! I was so excited, and to make things worse, my water pump just crapped out, and I now can't afford the $250 all the other shops want to charge me to install them!!! So every day I drive home, park in my garage and my springs are just sitting there, mocking me. I have acquired a floor jack and I think i'll just give it a try myself. I know i'll need to have a shop swap out the springs, any other advice you guys have about doing the job, or anyone want to help, or watch? I dunno, just though i'd ask.
