    I'd give it a moderate to easy rating for the job.
    Install - about 40 minutes (using spring compressor, and air tools)
    Alignment - about 30 minutes (remember to let them settle a few days before alignment)

      sweet. just wanted to check for any surprises before i got the car apart.

      asked friday at school, and apparently my school doesn't have any spring compressors. (well, we do have one, but it's bolted to a wall. wtf?) so fuck tech school, lol.

                  i think you'll need an inverted torx bit to get the front upper mounts off. other than that its pretty easy

                      You will love them. Its a great sight to see when you lower your car off the lift and it keeps getting lower and lower. lol

                        You don't need spring compressors. Just stand on the strut assembly while you take it apart and make sure you have something infront of it for when it lets go so you don't lose anything. If it's laying ont he ground and you're standing on the spring it can't hit you in the face or balls.

                          Or he could just get the free compressors from Advance and not risk hurting himself or anyone else helping him.
