Ome..

Tackling this today with the help of a friend since I'm no mechanic.
Finished the rear since the rear was much easier from what I heard.
Taking a break..
Any advice on the front?

Re: Ome..

Well, if your front LCA cams are not seized up (wont know until you start)...you can get by without compressors using this method:

(you should take them out partly anyway and put anti-seize on them if at all possible (if you havent)

I used the above method to install my Bilstein 6112s. It was fairly easy and worked well. Only thing I have to add is, as I was using the floor jack on the LCA to compress the coil spring, the vehicle lifted off of the jack stand. Once I was able to thread the bolt on the top mount of the shock and gave it a few quick turns with a wench to ensure it was on, I slightly lowered the floor jack until the vehicles wieght was back on th jack stand. Then I finished the install. Ran into this on both sides.

This may or may not happen to you, but if it does your fine, just use caution while your fj’s wieght I’m not being supported by jack stands because it will be much more unstable.
