have all the big hardware for my drop (spring/shock combo). Any good tips for installation besides a spring compressor? Helms is on the way, but does anybody have good install instructions from personal experience? any help is appreciated.

btw, 01 accord sedan

sometimes when you unbolt everything and the lower control arm doesn't come down all that much, you need to disconnect the swaybar endlink to the lower control arm.

usually this becomes more apperant with large aftermarket swaybars.


everything else is pretty straight forward. and BE CAREFUL when working with compressed springs. it is DANGEROUS so take your time!

When you take the top of your stock ones becarefull and dont loose ant washers. One of those washers keeps your shock from poping out and hitting the hood. Youl see when you take it apart.

spray everything with wd40 few days before you actually start doing the work.
