I want to get some HL springs because most of the time i ride my girl and i saw that they sell them with a tool. Is the tool a must have for doing the swap or does it just make it easier? and for those who have them should i do the front and rear or can i just do the rear for the extra weight of another rider.

They can be installed without the tool if you know what you are doing but it's not an easy job and it's easy to get hurt if the spring get away from you. Tool makes it much easier and safer.

Yes you can just use them in the rear for the extra weight. You can always do the front later if you don't like how the bike sits or handles.
