Fab stuff? You should only need to drill a couple holes for the CC plates, and the rest should just be take out and replace. I don't see a need for fabing anything, unless I am just dumb...which could be the case too.

But, with labor charges, that might not be far off because they are probably giving you the book times at about $70 an hour. Got any friends who are handy? Those items shouldn't be too hard to do in the driveway with the right tools.

I know the springs and the shocks and struts aren't hard. Ive done those myself with hand tools. I have no idea about the C/C plates.Check here for the articles for the springs and shocks. http://www.mustangevolution.com/articles/
