First off, any tips, tricks, etc would be appreciated that aren't already on LS1howto.com. Also, for the tools like the Torx40 and 50, and spring compressors, can I rent those at AutoZone or something? If not, how much $ should I expect to spend on the odds and ends? Thanks. I'll also be calling Strano for last-minute info before installing.

I installed mine a couple of weeks ago and Sam suggested using a strap wrench to keep the adjustment facing the wheel on the fronts. Otherwise the adjustment will spin in circles. Also get a jar of anti-seize and coat the top of the shocks in it. I got a spring compressor from Autozone and it worked okay but it was a free rental so I can't complain. Other than that, it is a pretty easy install.

I just got a guy to do it for 60 bucks so I didn't do mine :)
But good luck. I heard its not too bad.
