I'm not sure what we can throw in here but I have few things. I have the tools to do a manual tranny fluid change including the special tool. I also just picked up a power bleeder so you can bleed the brakes with just 1 person. I am willing to let anyone borrow this stuff with a refundable deposit and shipping.

If you are local I also have garage FULL of tools and other crap. I have the stuff to do a full suspesion including a big ass compressor. I did my brakes, sway bar, DP back exhaust, oil changes, FMIC, oil cooler and many other things with the tools I have. I have an Autozone down the street so if anyone needs to borrow a tool I can pick it up prior to arrival. If anyone wants they can use the stuff I have and DIY for maybe $10.

Anyone else want to add to what tools/services they can offer fellow PW members?

Where are you located bro? It doesn't say on the screen.

If we get enough people with this I can edit the first post to include people willing to help out fellow PW members by each state and area (IE I am in Northern CA, 1 hour south of San Jose/Sunnyvale and about 45 minutes north of Monterey)

Mine were a little tricky too, but some PB blaster and a BFH fixed that :D

If you are going to go with the BFH route, buy some spares as you might need them. You aslo might try cutting them but once you go that route there's no going back.

I will be down there a week from tonight, maybe we can work something out depending were you are located, I will be staying oakdale if you not far I could swing over for a couple hours of work, let me know. Are you replacing the UCA's.
