    Quick coilover fitting question

    Hi.

    Thinking of buying the Raceland coilovers. I believe i read in the rediciously long thread about these coilovers that you don't need spring compressors to fit the coilovers?

    i had spring comppresors but didnt use them, i know stupid when i had them, but the answer is you dont need them at all for the back and you dont need them to remove the front but once the front is of you need the bit off the top for youre new ones and to remove that you need to un do it all so if you dont use comprresors the spring comes flying out, if you have no choice do it in an open area facing away from you and be carefull simples

    Ok, thanks
    Yeah i know the compressors aren't that expensive, so i'll probably get one.

    Got a bit unsure since there was a member that said he'd done it without compressors, but i'll stay on the safe side
