DIY. Very simple. All you need is a breaker bar, 17mm socket, 14mm socket and a friend who weighs about 250lbs.

Do you have springs or coilovers? Oh and for tools that you may not have...and will only use once...Autozone will rent it out to you (ie. spring compressor) if you got springs.

don't forget the spring compresser, a 5mm allen key, a 10mm for the brake lines, a 12mm for the OEM brace bars, and and open end 14mm for the top of the shock assembly.

if u diy for the first time, expect it taking about 4+hrs for the front two wheels...and a 4+ hrs for teh rear.

for me it was:
4hrs on the front driver side (messed up way too many times)
1hr on the front passenger side (i messed up so many times that i knew exactly wt i was doing)

3hrs on rear passenger side (again, many screw ups)
30mins on rear driver side


and keep in mine i was using powertools...

hah power tools are ur friend....
