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.

I didn't install my rear camber kit myself, but just yesterday I took them out and adjusted them and it only took about an hour for both. what kind of camber kit is it?

It does not take an hour for each side. It took the guy that did mine like 5 minutes a side

that's pretty fast :eek: , 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. :gapteeth:
