suspension

Has any on put on upper and lower control arms in rear and springs all the way around on a 9594 mustang?....how long should it take...a shop told me 6 to 8 hrs to do it and it don't seem like it should take that long.for $350 good price??...I would do it myself but never done it before and don't want to get stuck some where along the way and not know what to do, thats why ima take it to get it done. Opinions?

Re: suspension

its rather easy as the only thing holding the rear end into the vehicle is 6 bolts~ (1 each upper 1 each lower and two shock bolts... not counting the brake lines.

Its pretty easy with a lift and a tall jack to drop the rear end~ If you dont have lowering springs get some now as the install is the same for the rear as doing lower control arms.... but you will need c/c plates up front.

I would say start to finish if a shop is doing it using a lift they should be able to get it done in 4 hours if its just upper and lower control arms.

Save yourself the $350 and learn something in the process.
If you have to buy a few tools at least you will have them for future use unlike the $350 if you pay to have it done.
Pick up a Chilton or Haynes manual to guide you, download some how to's from the internet and have at it.
You will save at least a good portion of the $350, have some new knowledge under your belt and the satisfaction of having completed the job yourself.

Yeah.an with trojan horse..theirs always millions of forms or instructions in the internet and any will be helpful.later you could even install springs our parts like that and get your self some extra cash and you already have the tools.it's always better to get into your car than other people doing it cuz that way you get to know your car better.
