 installing the front coil springs?
Will be installing the Moog 80090 springs, most likely cut half a coil, but no more than that.
Will I even need a compressor?
Thanks,
Russ

I installed them without a spring compressor easily.  They are far shorter than stock so I don't think you'll have any issues getting them in, especially if you cut half a coil.

I thought they were shorter, but haven't compared them side by side yet with the old ones.
Thanks!
