OK, I have an Eibach Pro Kit on it's way. How many here have installed them on their own? I know I'm gonna need a spring compresser, and I AM a mechanic (even though it's airplanes I work on). So can someone experienced in this exercise give me any heads up? This is for a V6 convertible BTW. Thanks in advance guys and girls.:bigthumbsupGlen

Since you're a wrench turner it won't be hard. The spring compressor intimidates a lot of people into hiring it out. Pretty easy on jackstands. Not 100% sure how difficult it is to access the shock bolts in a vert.

You should be fine. You'll need to align the car which may require a cam kit 4R3Z-3B236-AB from Ford. Some alignment techs can modify the factory cams to get the car into specs but, to do it right you'll need the kit. Good luck. Check out Alldatadyi.com it costs a little but, a lot less than paying a tech.

You shouldn't have any issues with your experience level. I did all of my suspension work in the garage with a spring compressor rented from Autozone. Here are some schematics of the front and rear suspension.
