I just did an install today on a friends car. All that it is, is an allen wrench. However, I don't see a way to get in there and tighten it up w/out taking off the fenders again frown I can do it, but it's just depends on time and money. I don't know when I can help you out. It would only take an hour to do.

How do you take off the fenders? i see these bolts on the inner top parts of the fenders, are you supposed to take those off to get the fender off? how hard is it to take off and put it back on?

not difficult, but time consuming

must temove front bumper and side skirts (if you have body kit installed)

You have to remove the bumper, headlights, and fenders. the sideskirts don't have to be removed, only unscrewed from the fender. Today, I helped a friend do his...Got it done and put back together in 3 hrs. 20 mins.

All we would have to do is pull off the fenders and tighten the allen bolt at the top of the shock. Then I would put some loctight on it so it would never come out again. I would do it to both sides (driver and passenger) so it wouldn't ever happen to the passenger side too. No taking off the hinges or doors. It can be done in an hour or so at most. I would do it for 150, but time is the issue for me
