coil compressor, jack stands, jack, and lots of patience. Mine was a bit** to get in at least on one side a friend would be nice also to give a hand.

yeah thats how much mine was...basically your goin to have to undo everything to get the coil out...and we compressed it...and got it out...then got another bite on it to compress it more seeing how you are taking up some space with the spacer...but it wasnt that hard me and my dad did it in no time...just make sure you have a good floor jack and jack stands and wd-40...you are goin to love the look...i gotta post pics of mine
