I have an 04 Toyota Matrix aprox 140k on her. I think it is time to sink some serious money into it and keep her going. I have a laundry list of things I need to do. I am a rather handy guy taking 4 years of Auto shop in HS and working on a few race cars over the years.
Is it worth it to try and replace your own struts? I watched a few youtube vids and one guy kept saying I am going to show you how but you should just take it to a mechanic because they have better tools. I don't have any air tools, but I got a lowes card and they sell them there. I have a small Porter-Cable pancake compressor. I don't know if it can handle running an impact gun for a long time.
I hate paying someone to do work I could be doing myself. I have a jack and stands and what not. So I would just need the spring compressors and the air tools. Plus I like buying more tools (What man doesn't need more tool or guns?)...
I'm not Sheldon! I'm the Flash! And now I'm going to the Grand Canyon to scream in frustration *takes two quick steps* I'm back
