Had mine for a while and love it. I soaked my bolts overnight in WD-40 and didn't have any problems gettning anything off myself. Took me about 4 hrs to do. Not hard I just took my time and was working alone.

get the V5 setup. It's cheaper (slightly) and stiffer(also slightly).

It's relatively easy to put in, it just takes a while if you've never done it before, or don't have all the right tools.

get the right tools... namely a LONG breaker bar w/ a 17mm(I think) socket and lots of penetrating grease... Mine weren't rusted or anything, but they were a pain in the 4$$ to get off... got one bolt off, w/ a regular socket wrench, the other I got off w/ a breaker bar and adapter, the next one broke two adapters... the rest came off almost easy w/ the breaker bar and correct socket(no adapter)
also a socket wrench w/ a passthru is nice and will save you ALOT of time, altho I did 3 of mine w/o one... the last I had to take to a shop to get the top nut off.
the small top nuts on the rear are also a pain, because of the tight space, so a SMALL socket wrench(>4" or so) helps there... it's nice to have someone to help you line things back up when you're putting the strut/spring assemblies in the car, but not neccessary. it's really not that hard w/ the right tools. good luck!

I've had the P1 suspension for about 3 months, and I like it quite a bit. Really reduces body roll. I still have the RE92s (hoping to change that soon), and winter just doesn't want to let go, so I can't really comment on the ultimate handling ability. It is stiffer, but not too bad, even with these CRAPPY Michigan roads.

The bottom bolts are 19 mm, same as the lug wrench. I used a 4-ft piece of iron pipe over the lug wrench and didn't have any problems!
