SUS: 5th gen - GC coilover/AGX shocks install (pic extensive)

that should help you out alot, it really just depends on your mechanical know how. i think its an extremely easy process just time consuming, but i have done it on many other cars as well.

Like stated above, it's not bad, but it takes a while. I actually used that exact thread to do mine, pretty straight forward stuff. On a scale of 1-10 though, I'd give it a 6.

Re: on a scale 1 to 10 ?????

with the right tools, and some basic know how, i'd give it a 4 out of 10, but without the right tool or being wrench retarded, then 8 out of ten

Re: on a scale 1 to 10 ?????

Okay, I didn't have the right tools and that **** was hard and it took a while.
8/10 or 9/10
If I had a way to compress the springs it would have been pretty easy.

lmfao everyone has a different scale in mind to compare it to.



4 years ago i woulda thought an engine swap woulda been 20 outta 10, but now with some experience i would rate it maybe 7/10, it really isn't difficult at all. and switching springs and struts would be like 1/10.

years ago i never woulda EVER imagined building my own engine, but right now it is an entirely possible scenario, in which case i'd rate susp. install like 0.5/10 in comparison to that.






just saying everyone's scale is different.
