Arrow Suspension Assistance? :P

Hi! I live in the northern DFW area (ft. worth side off 287/I-35W).

https://www.fitfreak.net/forums/fit-...-question.html

Long story short, I forgot to transfer one part from my OEM springs and the typical knocking noise that is most likely coming from forgetting to set the preload (herp derp).

Unfortunately, the help i recieved from my cousin and friend are... nonexistant for the next couple of weeks as they are busy with their own personal lives and a 'good' friend of mine decided to bolt upstate with ALL MY TOOLS: not a single peep, notification of location/contact either. Do'h.

So, the predicament comes from me having no access to mechanical saavy people as well as the adequate tools to perform an easy (or moderate, if the axle pops out XD) removal/reinstallation of my front coilovers to alleviate the noise and sliding the necessary part in.

If anyone is willing to give me some assistance, I will pay you back with possibly a free lunch/dinner and a nice bottle of liquor/pack of beer. Lol, in all seriousness, I can possibly repay you in equivalent to whatever work there may be (hopefully not alot since I know what needs to happen).

But alas. We'll see how this goes.

Thanks!
That one guy.

I'm way way on the other side of DFW (McKinney), I don't have a ton of Fit/Suspension knowledge, and I don't own a spring clamp or much in the way of specialty tools...

But my wife will be out of town this weekend, I've got a pair of hands, and I'd hate to see someone stranded with a broken Fit.

PM me and we'll see if I can be more help or hinderance.

oh, it's not as much as broken as just small hindrances. its totally drive-able and if anything, my VTec solenoid has given me more headaches than anything else (which i will be replacing myself once i get my bolts).

I'm in no hurry to do this since as stated, I have a busy schedule myself. But if you have an air compressor/air tools, what i need to do will definitely be smooth sailing (allegedly). Lol

I'll for sure get back with you later this week depending on my schedule.

On the way of DFW, it's worth going using and feeling it's air.

I always have been done it and will do it in future.
