Wow, just watched all the videos, and I now feel a lot more confident that I can do the coilover installation by myself. Thanks!

Make sure you have a set of spacers ready to go.
I had to wait 3 days till I got spacers, because my wheels didn't clear.

Been watching these

Great videos. Getting ready to install my coils soon, but I'll be re-using the old shock mounts :(

Don't do it yet if you're going to install without new RSM's! You'll regret it in the long run and it's just so much more convenient to be doing it all at once.

I haven't done it yet (about to purchase ST coils and RE RSM's sometime soon) but I'm planning on doing it right the first time after doing countless searching.

OP, thanks for the video links, I'm sure they'll be very helpful!

Me and my customer service guy did my E60 in about 4 hours...Great videos.

I just put together my TCKlines...WAY EASIER since the springs are shorter. I was trying to use a spring compressor...
