Easy DIY job. I did ours recently, took about a hour and a half. Jack it up, wheels off, axle stands in place. Undo the drop link from the suspension strut on both sides. Some drop links have flats on to get a spanner on the back but I found it easier to just grab it with the moles. Undo the anti ro...
