        Live in Eugene, frequent Portland as that's where my family is. Only one shown in that picture is disassembled. They need refinishing.

                Whew! It's hard to pick up on inflection on the interwebs! :D

                A good majority are locking, but even still unless you're turning rings around a drivethru the speed change front and rear is going to be much less of an issue than speed changes side to side.

                  What tools would i need to swap out my front springs? besides a spring compressor and MM wrenches of course, some tutorials say a torque wrench is needed for the nut on top of the shock, can someone confirm this for me?

                    I'm about to do a suspension overhaul in the coming week, I have never done suspension related stuff. A lot of info on the web and Ive been reading it all. You'll probably want a torque wrench to torque to spec. I got one last Christmas and have been aching to find a use for it haha

                      Thats means ill have to rent from stupid aurora rents. aka a POS tool that doesn't work but they charge you 80$ anyway... Maybe ill borrow my military neighbors, hes always using it during the week. Wish there were not so many speed bumps, or the springs would have never came out...

                        Go to autozone or oreillys and they will let you rent out tools. You put a deposit down and they give that back when you return the tool

                          My father might have a torque wrench, but yea I rent the stuff I can from AutoZone. I shouldn't need an impact wrench right? My father was arguing that I would.

                            Impact wrenches are nice, but not necessarily required.

                              You will need one to get that top nut on the strut loose.

                                This is where I don't believe so, I managed to do my friends miata coils without it.
