QUOTE=the roadie;13976]Perhaps the mechanic didn't realize you have to compress the springs an EXTRA amount to install the spacers. Sometimes if you don't put on the compressors on the absolute farthest coils, you can't compress it enough to get the spacer in before the coils all touch.
Is the vehicle still on the mechanic's lift or something?[/QUOTE]
roadie is right, I just did this job a couple a weeks ago, you really have to compress the coils to fit the new spacers, I can just imagine compressing for a 3" lift!! I didn't change my shocks though, with the extra compression in the springs it's like it gave alittle more life to them, besides I took the whole thing apart once, next time will be a breeze, I am sure 2 - 2/12 hours max I could have the both sides done.
