In preparation for whatever modifications I am going to attempt myself I decided it is a good idea to stock up on some generic mechanics tools. I'm going to shop around tomorrow and will update on what I find with prices and such.
- Floor Jack - while a lot can be performed using the Subaru bottle jack it's so much easier to get the car up using a solid 2 ton jack with wheels.
- Jack Stands - while allowing the entire car to be lifted over 10" they also provided some added safety while lying underneath your 3000lb car.
- Metric Socket set - My socket set got left behind at a buddy's when I moved out to Boston so I'm going to find a solid mechanic's socket set including spark plug sockets.
