      just went down and bought a strut compressor, set of metric sockets, new ratchet, jack, and jack stands. lowering my car once my crap comes in the mail. anything else I am going to need? probably will go pick up a set of torx drivers too.

      Impact gun would help with the struts.

      You'll need an offset wrench and Allen then. Check out the coilover DIY thread for what tools you'll need.
