DYI camber kit install

How much of a pain in the ass is it to install a camber kit yourself? Is there a "for dummie" manual around somewhere?

if you have the tools its a snap. i dono what its really called, but my buddy had a "tuning fork" that we just popped them out of the upper arm, pulled out the arm, and then you can pound out the old ball joint(i had a shop do it with a press for free), and the SPC kit just bolts in up front. Then reinstall the arm. In the rear, pop the joint out with the fork, take out the bolt in the inside, put the new one back in. thats with the SPC kit anyway.

but dont just use that as a guide, get someone who knows whats goin on.

yeah, i got quoted 150 for installing the rears, cause there's some magic book that says it takes an hour or each one.

that's pretty fast , but a fast job doesn't usually mean a good job. anyways, I thought about an hour was good for using regular hand tools and no power tools.
