We cheated because we didn't have the specialized tools needed to remove the shocks. Took us 5-6 hours or so (3 people). One of the 3 had his VW put on springs...was quoted 2-3 hours...and it took them 8!

Now Parker has my car for an alignment...

If they'd do the alignment too...I'd take them up on the 5.5 hours.

Seriously?? Eek! Most other threads have shown it being just a couple hour job.

On a side note, she's back in my arms. After a long 2 months at Alpine, she's finally home. She feels soooooo good. Oh, and she's never looked hotter.
