    For people who have installed their own springs, what thin socket did you use and where'd you get it?

    I took a normal 13mm socket (a long one) and grinded it down around the outside until it fit in the holes. Don't waste money buying a new thin socket. They are out there and you can buy them but go buy a cheap socket and use a bench grinder if you have one. Took me 5 minutes to do.
