    Im quite a way, but have all which you can borrow, one of the spring compressors is pretty shit tho but what do you need them for if your fitting coilys? the only ones you compress are front, and your replacing the arm so no need to touch spring

    You dont need spring compressors mate.
    I can borrow you a jack, i think me and my mate have 2, or 3.

    Also you dont NEED them spanners for the coilovrs, just use those massive plier things, forgot what they called, but youll need 2 of them;

    These;

    one bolt from each shock and drop the rear axle is the easist imo, dont even have to remove the wheels really could be done in less then 5 minutes
