Default Do we need a DIY on springs?

Is there a need for a DIY on springs? I'm going to be doing mine tonight and can write one up if needed. ?

no problem. yeah I searched and didn't find anything. only found one for the GS which i'm sure will be similar to the IS and what i'll be using for my guide. Only problem is I don't know the torque specs for any of the bolts...

Edit, found some torque specs posted by IS350S2K:

Torque specs:
a. Upper shock mount x3 (49 ft.lb)
b. Upper shock nut (20 ft. lb)
c. Actuator cap (14 ft.lb)
d. Ball joint nut (64 ft.lb)
e. Swaybar upper endlink nut (62 ft.lb)
f. Lower shock bolt (133 ft.lb)
g. Skid control sensor wire (10 ft.lb (shock body), 53 in.lb (fender body))

Thanks. I just purchased that same 2 day subscription to the repair manuals that IS350S2K did, so I have all the torque specs and instructions. I'll do the install tonight and do a proper write up this weekend.
