    on the rears, the coilovers are VERY easy to fit, but the beam bushes not so, and at the front, the bushes are very easy to change, but the front uprights tend to be tough to get out of the hub clamp/seat.

    you should be fine with some basic mechanical knowledge and common sense, although the beam bushes require a tool be be pressed out and then refitted.
