OMG, dealer just quoted me $499 to install just the front struts! Holy crap. I even confirmed it saying again, that I had the actual struts, and they replied, yes, that is for the install and strut cushion parts... Wow, for sure not having them do it.
Ordered my 5100 set from Down South Motorsports
. Called and spoke to them. Should be here on Thursday.
I'm going to try and do the rear maybe this weekend, if it's not raining.
Seems like there are several ways to do the front. Last thread I read did it by pulling the tie rods off (free rental tool at the auto parts place). Seemed like that may be easier than removing the LCA. Still worried about doing it, as not being able to finish it, surely means a tow to a shop. Also looks like it would be wise to have jack stands too.
