Got home at 10:30 PM after work one night, Found the UPS box, called my buddy, and put it all on by 1:30 AM. It is honestly very easy. Just watch a video online and then when you take off the wheels just look at your current set up and unbolt & replace.

rent spring compressors from auto zone its free and they are self explanatory to use.
Also don't forget to get an alignment ASAP afterwards.
So tempting to do myself... I don't have a jack or jackstands yet...

On a side note, is that a bumpsteer kit? If so be aware that some folks have had issues arise with the EPAS after installing them.

Would love the jpc or borla. I just can't justify the cost and don't trust any of the local shops to remove the resonators.
Picked up the borlas used on the classifieds here pretty cheap. Compared to new anyway! Keep an eye out!

I was reading about the front upper control arm and EPAS issues.. was unaware the bumpsteer kits were also having similar issues. I may read into it more before installing!

I really would love to do the install myself. Maybe I'll look into the jackstands and jack this week for a weekend install...
