all done. you need a good amount of tools and some diesel heaters in this weather, but its all done. just jack it up and give r shit. a second hand is helpful too. need lots of rags for oil. took 4.5 - 5 hours but we are not pros. if it was summer, it would of been better, but a buddy with a shop is needed at this time of year. I saved hundreds today, but I still need two tie rod ends and an alignment.
