yeah i just had them installed onto my r/t about 2 months ago and when i was doing mine i noticed that the rear springs (fatter/wider ones) looked a bit diff than the originals but believe me the rears are a B**** to replace yourself. I was Bitching and fucking throught the whole process on the rears. Good luck man. PM me if you need some help or anything.

it wasnt too bad but like i said the back was a bitch to take apart. Bolts did not want to come loose and so forth. I even had to go out and buy another 15mm iodized socket for the torque wrench since my regular one broke. the fronts took me about 30-45 minutes to do both, but of course i had help coming from my dad and one of my buddies. As me and my buddy took everything apart my dad was swapping the springs. The front springs we had to scrunch them down so i could screw the strut and everything correctly however the back springs simple went on and i was able to put them onto my struts without scrunching them down. But yeah let me know if you need any help and ill be glad to help you out.

make sure you have all the tools required for removing suspension componenets. The biggest hang up for when i did springs on a 1st gen was having to run and buy a couple of tools. Consult your Haynes manual for that one.

yeah true that i know the Hanes manual helped me out a ton and having the necessary parts is always a good idea also. Good thinking Gazetowardthesky.

you cant do the alignment properly without a machine... its usually around 60 buck for the alignment, but WELL worth it.

yeah make sure you have a torqe wrench or else your going to have a hell of a time LOL. And make sure you dont brake any bolts or anything especially in the rear. Good luck and let us know how it turns out.

Get some liquid wrench, penitraiting oil, or wd40 and spray the nuts and bolt before you do the job (the night before is a good idea), and remove the back seats speakers, and rear deck carpet so that you can do the job first thing in the morning.

Get the tierod puller and spring compressor from a local parts store (most rent them for free with a refundable deposit. The newer strap type compressors are nicer to use.

Mark your bolt locations before removeing them, It will make realinement much easier when you put it back together, also keep all the nuts screwed on there prospective threads as you will know, which part when where.

Use jack stands to lift the car so that you are not raising and lowering the car multiple times.

The other things like torque wrenches were already mentioned earlier.
If you plan on changing out your brake pads, rotors, speakers (rear deck) it is a good time to do that while you are at it.
