They rent them out at Canadian Tire, all you need to put down is a deposit and they will return it once you bring the compressor back.

U-fix-it in New West has them, but I think you need to use them in their shop (but they have lifts!)

done and done. just need to get her in for an alignment.
was gaaaay too.
rears went ok, where everyone on mazda forums said it would be hell. but i have aftermarket endlinks back there... up front i had to use up like 9 fiber cut off wheels for dremel to cut the endlink bolts apart to get them off.


next order of business; get my cracked manifold welded and find a decent price on a intercooler.
