Looking to see if anybody has any advice for someone that is going to lower the front suspension.
I just got my Eibach spring kit. B) And I wanted to see if anybody could tell me if there where any special tools or equipment needed for the install of new front springs...

Not afraid of getting in there and get dirty, but I've heard horror stories about needing compressors and all for coil-over springs. Didn't know if that should be something to be concerned about.

On a separate topic -
What's the difference between the wheels on a front wheel drive car vs. an all wheel drive car?
Is one more robust than the other, or is it just a marketing scheme.

Not sure what you mean by "horror" story, but being struts, the front springs will require a compressor to change, unless you're willing to risk taking your head off. Just go to autozone and borrow/rent one, not a big deal. You can also use the compressor on the rears, or you can use a floor jack very carefully.

There are no differences between the wheels of the FWD and AWD on the Flex, not sure what marketing you're referring to.
