To do the back of the cars suspension is a walk in the park. The front isn't extremely hard but it is a bit more challenging and camber caster just replace the plate up top in your engine bay so pretty much its more time consuming than anything.

Lemme just jump in and ask, what kinda shocks could I use on a 2 inch drop? I did it a couple months ago and I think my stock shocks are starting to go bad

not a surprise on a 2" drop, factory's go quick over 1.5"

koni, tokico, Bilstein; all good

You can do your struts if you have basic mechanical knowledge. I did all four shocks and struts, changed my fuel filter, installed a rear sway bar and replaced wheel bearings in a little under 5 hrs. If your nervous about it maybe pick up a Haynes manual. About 15 bucks from AutoZone. It helped me with a lot of stuff on my car

Struts are pretty damn easy lol, but I get the mechanical level thing but it's pretty straight forward once your down there

I lowered mine and it actually raised it in the rear? Why?
Same height springs as factory higher spring rate would be my guess

Agreed its not that bad just takes a little know how for it, but even then you can just look at it and figure it out lol

Yeah take pics while you're tearing down and follow the pics backwards for help if you forget how things go. But every car I get, I immediately buy a Haynes or a Chiltons. Ask my wife, it drives her nuts! Lol
