yeah dude.. just make sure you take your time and drop the spindle and coil to keep the spacer and coil seated right during and after installation. the only major advice that i have is that.

As far as i knew, doesn't the spacer go on top of the coil and into the spring pocket? Just from the wording it sounds like its going on the control arm, just tryin to clear it up, because my spacers are on top of the coil.....
