^haha

coilovers are so simple. pull your wheels off. unbolt the two bolts behind the brakes. and then the three bolts on each tophat under the hood(front) and behind the rear seat back(Assuming its a sedan).

reverse engineer the rest. very easy. do it

it's not interior, it's not exterior, it's not powertrain.

it's suspension!!!!!

but yeah. the two 19mm bolts that hold the hub knucles to the strut body will be a bitch. get some PB blaster or wd-40 and let it soak before taking a breaker bar to them.

Make sure you do alignment after. You've most likely need a camber bolts for the rears and the alignment guy can install it for you.

Im the kind of person who likes to know how the install is going to be
BEFORE I start taking parts off....

-I know a great guy back in Denver who installed my springs for me, but like most of you guys said, coilovers are much easier to throw on.
