Or better yet, keep them. 10 bucks man. I bought a pair when they were on sale last time just to have them.

oh they're only 10 bux!? well if that's the case I'll just buy it.

btw Trooper, what do you mean that yota springs don't need a compressor?

I never needed to compress springs on a yota depends if you want slack you have on your brake line tho. 10 beans just buy it if you need it you got it.

yah it is better to have it just in case, but pinch the flex line, unhook it and let the diff droop till the spring is fully unloady and pull it out

For the rear there is no need. I just unhooked the shocks and lifted the rear with a fork lift. 10 Min job at most that way.
I have a set for the front of tacomas and '96 and up 4runners. They have a strut assembly for which you'll need compressors to take them apart.
