    It's a pain, I'll have to borrow the crane the builders just used to winch new roof trusses up on the house down the road..

    I meant to say something like that - it highly depends on the 'free length' of your spring vs shocks.. on the GAZ shocks Dax supplied for my DeDion the fronts needed no compressors to assemble (just...

    That sounds about right - I guessed those heatshields were there to stop the turbos cooking the suspension and wiring, so they were probably hiding somewhere in that vicinity. I'll have another go...
