Ezflip, it takes you 3 hours to jack up a car? LOL.

I think it really comes down to how much you have done in the past. If you have a lot of experience and lots of tools/resources at your disposal you could probably do it in this manner. It was my first job like this that I had ever done so I followed all of the instructions to the letter and that is why I did things the way that I did.

It is not a competition to see how quickly you can complete the project. Do it right and take your time. Your life may depend on it. I have 5 mouths to feed at home so I didn't take chances going outside the box.

When you only have one jack and two jack stands, yeah, I spent a lot of time moving them around.

And using spring compressors is a lot more dangerous than not using them. Those things are inherently dangerous. If one side slips at all, you have a whole lot of potential energy being released all at once. Basically turning the spring into a rocket. Thats mostly the reason I didn't even try to use them.

^ that's why you need a crazy buddy to help you out. Let him do the spring compressor while you stand back 20 feet.
