Re: lift install

No air but I do have a Hilti electric impact gun. I'm doing my rear springs this weekend again and all I use is two jack stands and a 4 ton jack.

I live in Florida so the truck has zero rust on the bolts.

DAMN YOU



Must be nice


No air tools at home for me, was spoiled with them growing up with a 1500sf heated shop with air tools and everything else you could want including a 4' sand blast cabinet.

Takes me well over an hour just to rotate my tires now with hand tools

Re: lift install

I have air, but not mechanics air tools. Just a 4 gallon pancake compressor so I can blow the dust and debris into my eyes. , I also have electric impaact guns; a 120v corded and a 18v cordless.

Re: lift install

So did you just replace your worn springs for new procomp's? Or did you go with something else?

Re: lift install

I have air, but most the time I use the electric impact, just as powerfull and no time filling up the tank and then draining it

Re: lift install

Honestly I have heard the Mac impacts are better. I have heard(never seen it though) that if you hook up the Mac to the Snap-on, the Mac will turn the Snap-on backwards. Just something to think about, and if anyone else as heard this or different the sorry lol.
