1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo: Coil Springs!

Just because you have the tools, doesn't mean you need to use them. This is the lesson I learned from this project. That, and when it comes to safety, don't buy tools from China. Coil Springs pack a lot of punch. They support the weight of a vehicle, and when they compress, the power that they store in themselves is quite high. I am not even going to pretend like I would know how to calculate that stored energy, but it does become practically lethal. Like a bomb that you are going to have to manhandle and manipulate in order to get the job done.

So... Yeah. I have been wanting a truck for a while now. There are a few reasons why I wanted a truck. One being that I figured a truck would be good for transporting gravel, and other landscaping stuff. Another reason was that I have found I really enjoy working on vehicles, and figured a project truck would be fun.

I picked up this truck for $900. It is running and driving, but it will need some work.
