For a first timer like myself it will take a bit of time. I had a lift to use and it took me about 20 hours to make everything happen. I am by no means experienced at this and had to take time to make bolts fit and ****. You will need a wide variety of tools to make it work. I can tell you everything you need if he decides to go through with it. It is very time consuming and a lot
Of knuckle bustin haha but if he wants it bad enough he can make it happen! Ohh and it saves 500 to 1000 which is what it would cost to pay a shop to do it. At the end it is very very rewarding!

Yea it took me about 15 hours to put my first set in.... Now I can install them on my car in about 6 hours. A shop charged a friend of mine 900 bucks to put his in and they took 9 hours

I got bolts from jba, and half of em wouldnt fit wich i had to use some of the stock studs and half of them had to be ground down to clear the headers. People say it can be done without droping the k member... I dont believe it!

I was told i could by unbolting the motor
Mount on one side loosening the other and jack the motor up and it would rock it over so you could get clearance. Didnt even try it.

I've done that with a foxbody but I don't see how you could get enough movement out of a 4.6 to have the clearance with a factory kmember
