The install is easier than expected, just takes awhile. I've never done any work on a car (besides an oil change) and did the install with some friends with help of the Cobb instructions. It was actually fun working on the car and I learned a lot!That's just about perfect (ride height) - I'm convinced that I need to get those springs. I'll be going through the dealer for the entire thing though, no way I'm doing any of it myself, so who know's how much it's going to cost!!
