That's awesome man. I didn't realize tire places treated testicular injuries!! Sorry, couldn't resist. Glad you got it worked out. Remember to get an alignment and looking forward to pics.

S&S Tire here in town did my 5100 install and alignment today for $180 out the door. I'm happy.

I did them myself with the AutoZone loaner and an impact had also had them compressed at SEARS for a small fee. It was worth the 75.00 or so to keep my manhood in tact!

And now the plot thickens. Got everything together and took it to the shop to get the wheels and tires mounted and I ordered and paid for 35's and they got 33's. So now I gotta take it back and get the right tires. They did let me keep the 33's on until the 35's come in so that's good. It's not bad, but there's too much fender and not enough tire with them. So far we're sitting with 1.25 RCX Body lift, Bilstein's at 2.8, and I'll put the rear 1.5 spacers in tomorrow. I just want this evolution to end at this point.

I have a set of Bisteins sitting in my garage and I was planning to do them myself once my rubber needed changing (with new wheels of course). Picked up a princess auto set of compressors too...but after hearing about this ball-busting story, I think I might just pull the struts and have someone do the compressing-strut swap-decompressing at a shop. That way I can avoid any issues. I don`t have air in my garage anyway, so I might run into issues. panelman...I hope it all worked out for you. I am sorry, but I laughed my ass off when I read that you hit yourself in the nuts, but I am also glad you didn`t hit yourself in the face dude. Hey, post some pics for us! I`d like to see your ride when it`s all said and done.

Here's the finished product. Looks pretty good I think. Drives nice and I haven't really noticed a difference in performance, but then again I have the 3.92 option so that probably helps a lot. And after trying to give myself a home vasectomy I'd gladly pay the $60 again to have someone else do the springs. LOL
