    i know this is really stupid, but i don't want to pay someone to put the coilovers on my car. I want to do it myself. i know how they go on the car but i don' t how all of the stuff goes on the coilver when you put it together. like the little round rubber pieces which there are three diff. sizes flat round rubbers pieces and then little screw things. if anyone could help me out here it would be greatly appreciated.

    do you have tools?
    do you know which ones you need?
    did you try searching for schock or spring install?

    shocks/suspension are the easiest things to work on, but if you did not get new shocks youll need a spring compressor [rent one]

    btw...what kind of coil overs did you get?

    Easy as pie to install..

    As far as build order, just look at the shocks that you pulled off your car to begin with- that will give you an idea of how everything should go together.

    But generally:

    TOP

    nut
    washer
    bushing
    top hat
    anti-rattle rubber thing
    spring
    spring perch

    BOTTOM
