H&R Spring Install DIY

Hey everyone. I did a H&R Spring tutorial when I tackled this job on my 2016 i8. Wasn't the hardest but wasn't the easiest thing either. If you want to follow my i8 build hit subscribe and follow me on IG: @Rddc_Official

It's important to note, when this was done to my car the axles were damaged. Be very careful. I still will do it. It totally changed the car, along with the wheels the car handled like if it was on rails.

I found a way around the axles to not take them off. Remove the upper control arm and pull the struts out from the top instead of from the bottom. I read the manual and no way I was removing the axle. So being an engineer, I found another way around it
