Adding struts, strut mounts, and castor camber plates

I was just wondering if I could get some input on how difficult it would be to install new struts, strut mounts and caster camber plates to my 2012 Mustang GT.
I have read multiple manufacturer instruction scenarios on how to do all of this and it seems fairly straightforward.
I have all the tools I need as well as a jack and stands.
Let me know what you guys think and any problems you have encountered.

Well for starters you would do either strut mounts or camber plates. Not both.

haha, he prob meant struts. I've done it before. It's not too bad. easier with a friend to help. The backs will go quick. You could probably knock them out in 30 or so minutes with no help. Just give yourself plenty of time to get it done.

There's also a few videos on youtube about doing it as well as write up on American Muscle and what not. I don't think I ran into any problems when I did mine.

Yeah, installing the rear shocks is really easy, I knew that. I was more concerned about the front struts. My car is not a DD, so I can take my time and spread it out over a whole weekend.

It's not hard at all. Lowered mine 2 weeks ago with a friend and it's not bad at all if you have the tools. Impact driver saves a lot of time.
