Spring Install?

Has anyone done their own spring install? Would like to do this myself but would like to know if anyone has any experience and can offer advice. Thanks.

I was wondering the same thing. I want to install the ACS springs myself. There's no Bentley manual yet for the F10.

I saw the rears on mine get changed out and they went thru the speaker on top of the rear seat. Seemed easy enough but I wasn't paying 100% attention.

I've done an H&R spring install myself with a buddy and it took about 3 hours to do. Not terribly difficult if you have the right tools. I can post a quick write-up if there's enough interest.

I think there is enough interest on this board. For those who like to do this stuff and have the tools it not only saves money but is a source of satisfaction doing your own work.

that would be great. When someone finally do it themselves can you take pictures of the DIY.

Sorry for the delay. I wasn't subscribed to this thread so I didn't know there was any interest. Just finished the write-up and here it is:
