I ended up having to pull the coilover to fix my Taco lean so this video shows what to do for both.

The coilovers were already assembled

You still can so steering isn't too wild until you get to the shop.

So you do not need to worry about the position of the alignment cams if you are going to get an alignment anyway?

You do. Use a paint pen or sharpie to mark where they were at before you break the torque. When you go to put it back, line up your lines, but expect it to still be off until you get to the shop.

Okay awesome thanks for the info. When I get a new suspension set up I plan to install myself and will definitely be using your videos as guidance!

Hey Rob quick question...After installing the spacer, do you have any chatter coming from the driver side (side with spacer) while off-roading? Just curious, because I installed the spacer to correct driver side lean and torqued everything to spec, however when off-road I hear what sounds like metal to metal contact.

No noise. Look around for any rubbing.
