Changing suspension springs is truly terrifying. If those suddenly go and you're in the way... good luck. Remember, those things can hold the weight of a car and only compress slightly. Imagine what amount of force they release when being fully compressed and then suddenly release all that force. I've seen them smash their way across an entire garage, breaking everything in their path.

Well done to all of you it must of been a ballache that especially for the guy who's just learning. Enjoyed this video! Keep them coming!

Ethan is like me 10 years ago when I started working on cars by watching SLpost videos! Tough times, but rewarding at the end! Keep it up good work! 👍

I felt the tension through my screen when he was compressing the springs, but that's because I've experienced a spring jumping loose when someone was compressing it.

Smashing body parts in the name of car or bike repair is standard. I change tyres dirt bike despite the inevitable knuckle thrashing 🤭 a stiff carcass administers.

We all know how it feels Ethan, when I lowered my Mustang I first only ordered springs, tried to replace just them, got them in and had to replace the struts too, got the struts back in and found out I also had to change the strut mounts and sway bars. I think I speak for all of us when I say good work and welcome to the at home mechanic’s Union.

Jesus it's painful watching Ethan do anything car related. How can 1 person know so little about cars and remember even less. He is literally about as much use as tits on a fish! Fucking entertaining though! 😂😂🐠

Ethan, you should kick these guys asses for being so mean! MAKE SURE TO FILM IT! xD You'll get ALL DA LADIES! Love the show guys! (If I tried to do this in my current form, I'd be dead before I got to the springs.)

Good on Mike for letting them use his 'shed'. really cool. I never knew the Z3 had non-vented front disks tough... really odd choice bmw made there..

No one knows true fear until you are compressing a spring and thinking all that's stopping this spring from punching a hole in your face is a couple of clamps

i think the basic of a project car is the interest of the owner to motivate them to fix/mod their car, sorry but i feel sorry for ethan, this is an interesting video but all i see is a man in distress told to fix/mod a car with zero knowledge and zero ineterest keep up the good work ethan!

When someone's down and says they're done with it. Please don't laugh at them and make fun of them if they're stuck on something help them out. We should appreciate someone new to the automotive industry. If we bash on them they'll give up.

It’s really cool seeing Mike on here. Can’t wait for more videos with Ethan’s project. It would have been cool to see him track it and then track it again after the mods but this alone is a big step 😅

Non-vented front brake discs on a relatively modern BMW roadster? What?! I daily a VW Lupo and even that has vented discs on the front despite it having only 59 bhp.

Just me who thinks Gareth is a biiiit of a dick? Like I get he’s playing around but it seems to always be at Ethan’s expense. Whereas Alex can laugh at himself sometimes

Ok guys, here is how you use that gun, you put it on setting one, ratchet it to snug. Then you finish it with a torque wrench. Setting three is for removal only.
