    It is, I love mine. Was going to make a thread with some pictures showing how to use it. Mainly just showing how easy it makes things for some of the guys who have never changed springs before. Never got around. Good tool.

    Ill need to get my hand on one of those tools when the time comes.

    Ive decided to bail on the LS6 heads idea...and have decided to go with either TSP's PRC stage 2.5 5.3L or their stage 2.5 LS6 style head. Along with the 228R cam. Those with my LS6 intake, long tubes and full exhaust and a tune from Cartek in NJ, I should definitely be in my 400-425 wheel power range. I dont know which head is better though.

    I cant tell you which is better. But from what I've read in other places, you cant go wrong with either set of heads. You'll like the out come either way and I cant wait to see what kind of numbers you put down with that combo

    treat stressful situation like a dog. if you can't eat or hump it, then piss on it and walk away.

    Not sure what that means but I can pay you full price for it, then when I return it, you can give me back as much as you wish...via paypal.

    JD means, Dont Joshie Doom me. AKA, dont screw me over. Just a joke between a few members.

    That sounds fine. Just let me know when you need it, helping members out is what this site is for.

    Thats what I would do. Just wait until you have everything so it can all be done at once.
