I may have looked over this in the thread, but worth asking:
Anyone running these in a set of Tough Dog gold coil springs (or any wider upgraded springs)? What size is recommended? Running 22.5-23" hub to fender in the rear.

I'm going to play with the larger portion of the dent today from behind the interior door panel. Besides the obvious of not using sharp tools to poke, are there any suggested trick for massaging? I've seen people try to inflate small footballs or similar to give even, conformed pressure. Not...

I bought this one:
You have to modify the arm to put pressure on the window. Where it pivots, there are two plastic 'arms' inside that need to be filed down to allow it to compress beyond the original position. I stuck a round skinny file in my drill and had it done in a few...
