    Spring compressor for the front. These two will take the longest by far.
    The rears are cake. 10 minutes or so for those two.

    As said the rear is easy but the front`s Ooo man they can be tough , more so if the car has seen moisture or salt ect . On mine my upper strut mounts were rusted but a mechanic friend and I were lucky enough to have saved them , it may be far less of a headache to pay someone else to do it .

    As for an alignment YES ! after mine was lowerd the toe was out a little and I had just had a alignment done a couple of months ago . Don`t forget to buy an ajustable Pan-Hard Rod !! ( I bought a UMI on car one, a verry nice piece ! ) A must If not the rear can seem sqweemish afterwerds , It happend to me I drove it for a couple of days like this and you do not want that feeling belive me at full throttle it`s scarry . Also my rear was totally off center after the install , Hope this helps .
