Install- Free, I installed them myself. 1st timer so it's possible. I used: 2 floor jacks, 2 jack stands. Long & narrow crowbar. Spring compressors. Pneumatic impact gun & sockets. ***I have bodyshop access & experience.*** Hot as h$ll here in Ga, so it took 6hrs.
Impression- Ride is very good, better than stock on smooth roads. Handles much better. It's even more predictable & balanced in the curves. It will get rough on a very bad road & railroad crossings. I've been on stock shocks that are almost 3 yrs old (1.5yrs @ install)& still going well. They are supposed to be matched for stock suspensions. It will align without any special camber bolts or kits.
Appearance wise, noticeably lower especially in back. Car is level now. There is almost 2 fingers of gap left. I am very satisfied. My 2nd choice was Hotchkis. 8 out of 10. The powdercoating is kinda soft & tools scratched them easily.
