Shocks and Struts installed (pictures inside)

Thanks to Brandon (SpectorV) and Nate for helping out

The car drives amazingly good after getting these things in. My stock shocks and struts were toasted. My car drives so smooth with these things on its crazy

We had to bust out the Airgun eventually, wasted to much time trying to get that one nut off the strut in front

I didnt have the right fitting for the airgun at the time had to wait for my dad to get home to use that, so in the mean time we ended up stripping the top part (part where you would put a flat head screw driver) trying to get leverage on the damn thing to lossen it, then we tried cutting it and got half way through when my dad got home

Took us 30 seconds with a air gun

Those tires look awfully familiar.

we had the pass side strut replaced in 30 min~ the driver side strut nut wouldnt budge... so we had to kill time to wait for his dad to get the air gun out for us to use. the rear shocks took like 40 min
