As with all modifications on this car, there is a bit of a learning curve when installing the konis. It comes down to whether or not you (and hopefully a buddy) are willing to spend a whole weekend working on a modification in order to save $xxx. You will find out that the more you work on this car, the faster you get at swapping things.

Read through Stretch's how-to on installing shocks and coilovers as a start. For the fronts, there ARE good how-to's that explain the cut-a-strut modification. Just do a google search on 'koni installation'. Once you have those fronts konis in, it makes it so much easier to swap springs with a spring compressor.

Or sell your koni's to someone else and buy coilovers instead. :)

Wish i could do that but...I'm a college student. So with somebody that never touched a suspension before is it realistic to do it by yourself. I know it will probably take an 8 hour day but Im willing to put in the time
