If so I would really appreciate it if I could borrow your jack and any other minor tools necessary. I don't really wanna be driving on these too much, and seeing as how I'm driving from Everett that's some good mileage. Plus I'm afraid of staying stranded. Thanks in advance guys.

I am pretty sure someone will have a Jack there you can borrow.

I usually borrow marks, but i just remembered he's running dr's 24/7 now so tomorrow I'll probably go buy a cheap one to haul back and forth to the track.

I'll bring some of my supplies... I have a small jack and a handy dandy portable impact wrench.

I'll take some stuff too, how about we help each other w/ tire changing to speed up the process. It took me about an 30-45 min yesterday to do both rears. PITA

Takes me about 10 minutes total with my portable impact.

Since I'm driving the Subaru Impreza (car's still laid up for the time being) I don't gotta change wheels... but I'll make sure I pack the impact for anyone who wants to use it.

I am going to run my slicks today, so I will have my stuff too. I would like to borrow your impact if I can Jason. My back is still fracked up. Changing #6 plug just about did me in.

Nitto DRs.

I'm gonna go ahead and take Mark's excuse. My back is acting up too, so any help would be appreciate.

I'll be glad to help anyone also.
