When i was installing the front coilovers we unscrew the swaybar nut and the 2 a arms bolt since we didnt have a bushing puller to easily take out the A-arm nut



installed



rears was very easy just need to take out the rear seats. Back seat cushion has around 5-6 bolts.
For the seat belts to release you need to unhook the clip





When the fronts was dropped to the ground it was slammed. LOL
fender was sitting on the fenders so i raised it up a bit and let the springs settle

This guy is not playing! But i agree you could save tons if you do the work yourself. Get to know the vehicle since youll have it for a while. Corner 3 is a good spot. Though i prefer lextech. I guess it all depends on location and whats best for you. Looking forward to your build sir.

yeah. If i have my own garage and the car can be down for a while then i can probably do it.
But it's not an option for me atm. It's all good tho and Thanks!

Today pick up some tires and mounted it on my wheels
I need to shave and hopefully roll the rears to clear.
Hoping I don't get bad dimples on the fenders

What did you do to get rid of the edge after trimming the fenders? On an old truck i had, i used metal rod, bent into the shape then rolled the cut fender lip under. This kinda makes it like factory, only two inches higher.

After cutting with the diamond cutting wheel. I used a grinding wheel to take out the sharp edge. It worked nicely after that. I wished I can just roll the fender but theres a high chance of dimples so I decided to just cut and be done with it.
