if im puttin in tein flex in my ride(98 ex coupe), do i needa get a spring compressor? the whole assemblys comin out so do i still need to compress it? also, any pointers about the install would be greatly appreciated. also, are traction bars esy to install? are they worth it and are they good for daily street use?

if you are re-using your stock upper mounts, then yes you'll need a compressor to get the mounts off. however, because of the height adjustability, you do not need a spring compressor to reassemble. install is pretty straight forward.
