YouTube it and it'll come up with a guy installing them to his 2000 mustang. Following his video it took me three days but that's cause I didn't have the right tools and kept having to go buy or call around to borrow some. Easy install really.

C clamp, torque wrench, an extender so the bolts would break loose, and a working jack that didn't leak.

I did the back two springs in one day.

The front took me two days cause I just couldn't get the bolts to break loose and then couldn't compress the breaks to get them back on the rotar.

Yeah always a good idea to have a large c clamp handy....most autoparts sell them for around $6....as for bolts.... always use pb blaster or something just as strong. Itll help big time
