Just installed my 2" drop coils, how many miles should I drive it before the coils settle in so I can get an alignment done.

It was easy as cake. No I didn't use a spring compressor. All I did was removed the tie rod link, sway bar link, loosened the lower ball joint nut and with a sledge I hit the spindle until it broke loose. Just remember to keep a jack under your LCA. This is were it can be scary, I lower the jack slowly and I just pushed the LCA down as far as it could go down then pryed the coil out. Just be careful the coil doesn't come flying out at you, I've seen them fly across the room before. Install your coil spring and install everything else you have removed.
Others will chime in on the safety factors on doing this.

Same here work work the story of my life. Been doing alot of polishing work on the side. You know winter time is over and everybody and their mother wants their shit to bling bling now. They just can't have me do it in the winter time when it's slow, they wait for the last minute to get their shit done. :whip:

Good to hear from you. :head:
