They expensive, id see my options of putting on yourself first, i cut the springs in my old sixxer by myself so new lowering springs would be close, just putting new ones in instead of cut ones

I just had a meineke do mine and the alignment after for $320 with a VIP discount. Shouldn't be over $400 or even $350. I would do springs myself but have a friend who's spring compressor broke and the spring shot out and shattered several bones in his arm. So I'm a bit paranoid and would let a shop do it. Price didn't seem unreasonable at all to me.

Yes. The exhaust components are not effected by the transmission. In my experience, spend the money up front and get something that is stainless steel and ceramic coated. I bought milled steel and non coated as my first lt headers and I regret it because the cost to get it coated now is way more than it would have been if I did it up front. Stainless will outlast milled steel and even if you think to yourself - im not going to have it long enough to rust, just think about this; if you go and put water on your rotors and don't move, overnight it has a coat of surface rust. Just imagine what happens to a weak metal header if water is trapped around it. Its not like you take a towel to them every day, if ever. If your excuse is it never rains, there is always humidity in the air. Humidity is a water percentage in the air which will contaminate your headers.

I never use a spring compressor. It's all about relieving tension slowly. If done right then it will simply come right out.

How do you take springs out then?

Lift the vehicle high enough for full articulation. The rear just requires the live axle to be fully flexed in one direction and then the other. As for the front, have a jack under the control arm and after everything is disconnected lower it all the way. From there if you dont have enough articulation just from the spring itself then simple pressure should be able to articulate the control arm a bit more and then pull the front coils out.

You guys are dangerous, doing it with the spring compressor is still a lot safer, I was lucky enough to learn how to use a hydraulic spring compressor.

If you never gonna use the stock ones, i did relief cuts so it lost most of its energy in those and was relatively safe, just backyard hotroding haha
