Anyone in Raleigh NC want to help me w/ a DIY?

Hey all, looking for some experienced M3 DIY folks. I'd like to install a set of lowering springs (maybe full c/o's but wouldn't mind having someone w/ experience look over my shoulder. Anyone in the Raleigh area turn their own wrenches?

I'm definitely not the person you're looking for, but I'd love to look over their shoulder while they look over yours just so I can learn. Also happy to throw in my own elbow grease if it helps.

Do you have a spring compressor? You'll need one to remove the springs from the front strut. I think you can rent one from auto zone. Just be careful as those things do slip and the spring ends up going airborne.

yep I think that's what I'll do is go borrow one from Autozone. I've done suspension on older VW's and Audi's but this is a "nice" car lol. I don't want to send a spring flying into the fender or anywhere else lol
