follow the instructions theyre very clear, you might need a buddy to help you hold one of the AC lines out of the way when you do the pass side plate but thats about it...

dont stand next to the car when you pop the front springs out, use the bumper as a "shield" and pry it out standing in front of the car...

a 2nd jack is helpfull doing the rear springs since removing the LCA makes the pinion want to rotate forwards...

and for gods sake, TAKE THE REAR SWAYBAR OFF AND PUT IT BACK ON WHEN YOURE DONE!!!!!

i cant tell you how many times people have called me asking why it wont work or why their car handles like a bag of poop afterwords...

Just make sure you have the jeck stands in good locations. I prefer to do it off of where the sube frames end. People tend to do it off of where the end of the side skirts mount underneath, but that tends to bend the thin sheet metal the car is made out of and pushes the side skirts out creating a gap making it look crappy. make sure also you have a jack under the front a arms and lower them slowly to allow the springs to easily decompress. You wont get them out with ease. Just press down on the a arm with your foot next to the ball joint and they should fall out or you can simply pull them out. Some people say this isnt good for your car, but it doesnt harm it. Ive done it to my car this way numerous times and has not hurt anything.
As far as the rear goes, make sure you unbolt the sway bar before dropping the arm. Also, dont just pull the bolt out without a jack under the arm. first off this would be very difficult and it is dangerous.

*****The most important thing is, when you are taking bolts out of things, do not stick your finger into the hole to push out the bolt. It you must push it out, use a punch or screwdriver to push it out. I remember someone posting on here about a year ago about how he got his finger cut off by doing this. Just be careful. I it takes longer to do it then the instructions say, dont worry about it. Theres no rush working on your car. You or others can get hurt or start to break stuff on your car if you rush.****

Having a buddy there too just in case is always useful. I had my uncle when I was doing the work on my car. I think I needed a second hand when I pried the stock springs out.

Bad advice... you should check out their site and see what type of control arms they offer before making statements like that.
