Yes it's easy to do it yourself. I'd rent a spring compressor from local auto store. Other than that it's a breeze.

Yes it's easy just basic hand tools and an extra pair of hands to breeze through the job. Look through the search bar and very helpful information will be there

I actually just got done lowering my car with eibach sportlines....let me tell you something it is sorta of a breeze...if someone has messed with your bolts and stuff it will screw u over...it took 3 people and a mechanic of 40+ years 2 hours to get one single little nut off...we guess whoever had messed with my ball joints and all that stripped the thread or whatever
