Just playing around and laying it all out. Minus the Energy bushings. Also replacing the SRT springs with either Roadmagnet or Eibach.

Oh hey you have front coils already installed and everything. In that case you won't even need a spring compressor. Just bolts and go lol.

Those things are literally a disaster waiting to happen. Chances of that slipping off are about 50% when used properly. Not worth losing a finger for a spring compressor. I would never do springs without a proper shop bench mounted press compressor.

Re: Nick's Black and Blue Build

I know when I lowered my car with the eibach pro kit I had to get an alignment kit. Does the same go for our WKs?

I think you're supposed to get an alignment on any car after you play with the suspension.

You sir are correct. Any time the suspension is taken apart you at least need to have it checked. That way if its off it can be corrected

Hmmm I wonder how air ride works with alignment tho... I mean if your constantly raising and lowering it doesn't it affect alignment?

Re: Nick's Black and Blue Build

Yeah I know you need it aligned after any suspension work but I needed an alignment kit. After lowering some vehicles you can't get them within specs..not enough adjustment play. So you need a kit for the extra adjustability. I just saw the tire rack recommends a alignment kit for just the front. Was hoping we didn't need them..they have the kit list for $199.😬
