Ask your friends. Someone you know has a jig saw. They might even help. If you have to buy one, a $30 Harbor Freight jig saw is a lot cheaper than a Procharger. Don't cheap out on the details.

I have wanted to do that and put some big assed tires on mine since the day I got it. If I didn't have a V6 and an automatic, I would have. Be sure to post pictures of it finished.

We are lucky it wasn't an American company that contracted the airbags. They would have filed for bankruptcy the moment it hit and everyone would be left holding the bag.

I bet you are going to find tire wear too. Take it to a shop and have it checked out. BL817 is right, it is probably tie rod ends. In any case it will require an alignment.

I shouldn't be too hard. Take you time and don't force anything. If need be, take notes and/or take pictures. Oh yeah, wear long sleeves. The thicker the better.
