    and get a mass pole and just lever them off
    there a bit of a cunt but just need to lever them out
    mind you the spring compresor might slide around and leave you with a bit of trouble but just use another one ( a 3rd one) and should be okay
    but it pisses me off when people assume your hooning cos your car is loud, has bald tires, a roll cage, fresh bake and dinted bumpers!!
    Or driving in a wolf pack.

    yes the shocks were taken off in the first place..... the IRS arm doesnt keep dropping like a live axel diff does.

    big pole it is.
    any other ideas..?

    the easyest way is, undo shocks and arms will swing down, if thats not enough with spring compressors ( i know its a kunt to get them in there ) undo the half shafts... will let the arms come right down. 4 bolts on each side...

    thanks john.
    yea i had the shocks off and the swaybar out and still was bloddy tight. i only had 2 spring compressors so that didnt help..
    i ended up cutting 1 coil off, and using a 2m bar. stod on the barr while ti was between the chassis and the arm and kicked the springs into place, a few battle scars but i can drive now LOL
    so one side is cut and the other isnt, with the opposite rear running a 175/65 so its level.
    and im off haha
