werent you the one that told me when you worked at ups, if items arrive before early they let them sit and wait so you arent getting quicker delivery than what you paid for?

since it didnt come last week i was plannin on working on it all weekend got real excited about it and then the women reminded me valentines day is sat :doh: and she would definatley kill me if i would spend sat working on the jeep so sunday it is (as long as my lift shows up) but if it comes before friday i might get a start on it in the morning time after donating some plasma and before 4 oclock when i have to work so if anyone is bored and have nothing to do friday morning ill be doing a bit of work on it but im sure the majority of it will all be done on sunday if anyone can make it let me know and ill keep posting on whether it comes or not
thanks

You probably won't need the spring compressor, they are a pain in the ass, and end up taking more time than they are worth.
If you're starting at 11, than you should be driving in time for dinner!
