    Default Lowering.. what tools please remind me? (exactly)

    Hi guys,

    Well, I've lowered loads of vauxhalls now, including my old sri CDTi before this one. On Friday i'm lowering my current vec on Eibachs, but doing it round my mates house as he has massive driveway and im currently living between houses!

    So, ive got my trolley jack, axel stands, breaker bar, spring clamps ready, but can anyone please advise the spanners, and sockets i'll need to pack to take round with me? (ive got a big drawed tool box which i dont fancy taking) Also, are their any star bits etc? cant remember??

    Cheers for any imfo! (hope im making sense??)

    Mike

    I just used a standard socket set, a hammer, and an allen key for the top nut disassembly (in addition to the spring clamps/jacks etc you already have). I had no issues what so ever.
