I need a DIY to install lowering springs any help?

Hey guys,

I got my BWoody springs and want to install them, I saw a write up here in the WK1 Suspension which was very good but no photos, lets just say I do a lot better if I can see pictures . I want to do this job myself since every shop around wants to charge me around $400 to do this. Sorry but for $400 I'm getting a cam or some go fast goodies. I'm pretty ok when it comes to working on the car. I have more tools than the local pep boys in my garage and can def do this job. I just need to know how. Do not want to experiment on my car without knowing a bit first.

thanks

Kamil

The back is self explanatory. No pics needed if you follow the DIY you were at before. Ask them how much to just do the fronts.

That is a good idea. I found a local forum member that might be able to help me out on this so I'm waiting on him to get back to me.

But thank you

Rears are really easy to swap. Fronts can be trickier if the lower bolt won't come out.
