Note: Requires a coil compressor to swap could from old struts to new ones. Interior of coil is very similar to the outside dimensions of the rubber boot. We used a plastic bag to guide the new strut thru the old coil. We recommend doing the coil swap at a tire shop for $25-$40.

DIY Install - I’m 61 years old - 7 Hours
In addition to the beefy struts and shocks This kit comes with Sway bar spacers,
Differential drop down spacers, upper control arms with bushings and ball joint already installed, and necessary hardware. You must use the original UCA Bolts so be gentle.
Direction (3 sets) include the upper control arms; the struts, sway bar spacer, differential drop; rear leaf spacer. The directions jump around making it somewhat confusing on the front end. Rear is much less complicated.
Expect one person Diy install to take 4-8 hours using a floor Jack and 2 Jack stands. It recommends two installers but I found that to cause one person hanging around and in the way.
Don’t be concerned about the UCA bolt and the inner body mod instructions... it was easy. Drivers side did not require shaving the bolt head as described. If you disconnect the wire clips in the engine compartment it will slide easily without cutting.
I installed the struts after the UCAs were removed providing easy one person install. Life will be easier if you have a 21mm and 19mm box wrench, an impact driver and air ratchet like I have.
Remember you should have the vehicle aligned following install.
