      Fuck doing pretty much anything suspension-related without air tools. Shit, I just did the rear brakes on my wife's Volvo a few weeks ago, and I almost broke my fucking arm just getting one of the caliper bolts loose.

            Also fuck shops/po's who put random imperial bolts on suspension pieces making it a guessing game with each bolt.

                    I got a couple of photos of the new car, with the new wheels on.



                    And then had a little fun with Photoshop. This is about where the H&R Cup Kit should sit.

                          I will say that I worked with hand tools strictly until about 3-4 months ago when I bought myself a nice little DeWALT 20v impact driver. Boy, that little fucker sure does make jobs go faster.

                          Tl;dr, don't be a p u s say, just get 'er dun.

                              I'm sure no one minds using hand tools but I'm also sure non of you would mind using air tools and lift if you had them at your disposal
