How hard is this?

I would like to buy some lowering springs for my mustang. Since money is tight (as with us all) I would like to try to install them myself. Is this able to be done? I'm not a mechanic but I've done the more simple things like change my rotors, brakes, intake, cat back exhaust, install stereos. I would appreciate it if someone let me know if I need any special tools or if will be able to be done over the course of a weekend without a lift (I only have a jack and jack stands)

Thanks!!

Only special tool you'll need is a spring compressor, which you can easily rent from places like AutoZone. Other than that, springs are a very easy swap.

It's a breeze with the spring compressor. Good Luck
