When was the last time You REALLY REALLY looked forward to something?.
When we were kids, it seemed like time slowed down the closer it got to Xmas, birthdays, holidays, next Saturday nights meet up with the most beautiful date in the entire world, birth of a child etc etc.
I'll tell you mine if you tell me yours!
I think I felt like that while being potty trained. Once I learned to aim the whole world slowed downed and life got boring.

You can install them yourself. Not that big of a job.

RE: Can't wait.............. - Yet have to......... - Damnit!!!!!!

i heard that u need an expensive spring compressor, good luck that u dont kill urself, and an alignment after, as the wheels would be severely off.......

also, a large jack, and jackstands, which i dont have at the moment....

anyways, have i been severely misled again, or something.....? even Dad said "justin something like that needs to be done in a shop full of tools, with a lift, and an experienced mechanic, thats done it before..." etc. etc.

RE: Can't wait.............. - Yet have to......... - Damnit!!!!!!

Amsoil, I reckon your Dad is right - leave the job to the pro's - it will be done better faster and safer if you have no prior experience nor expert help.

So here's what's driving me mental in anticipation:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1,1&item=7993042981&sspa gename=STRK%3AMEWN%3AIT

Due to my location (New Zealand) it took weeks for my payment to reach and clear in US, and though USPS Economy freight offers shipping in 4-6 weeks, reality could mean 2-3 months according to real world experience....aaah shoot, the pain!...
I'm into my 6th week of waiting...
And of course, every day I wonder - today maybe... [:)]

Meantime in my garage live four bloody beautiful staggered Yokohama tyres ready for fitting.

I wish I had the patience, but.....aaaah bum!.
