    rears are a doddle, fronts are a little harder but not too taxing. Always helpful having another pair of hands if you can.

    Don't forget that you'll need to get a 4 wheel alignment/geometry setup done once you've fitted the suspension as it'll be all out of alignment.

    Try and either hire or get hold of a compressor and gun.. i swear to god, its the easiest thing ive ever done on a car.. with an Air gun, takes about an hour and a half, did the back in about 10 mins... but without it takes seriously long!!
