300ex shock retrofit Q's

tacoma_20022010-08-10 10:19:36 +0000 #1
Ordered some shocks from a 2000 300EX (front/rear). Going to put them on my 2wd 99 300.

First off what is required to fit them?

How much lift will they provide? I know they have a few adjustments on them...whats the lift spec's for each?

Lastly, how do I adjust them? Will I have to use a spring compressor then spin the adjustment collar, or can I just get on them with a pair of channel locks and twist away?

They make a spring tool to do this with called a spanner wrench,,,shock spanner or shock wrench and they run from $7 to $20 bucks it makes life a whole lot easier an dosen't mess up your shocks

As far as what kind of lift your gonna get that I can't help you with

Yeah. I have adjustable Coilovers on my truck, so I know ALL about those spanner wrenches...I actually fabbed one for the first set of coilovers I ever bought....Maybe I'll do the same with these.
