Do I suck? Feels like it took FOREVER! Although that includes a 20-30 min beer break and running to Lowes to get wood blocks to jack the truck up higher. So maybe 8 hours 15 min or so.

You finished right? That's all that matters.

It took me about 6 hours to do mine by myself.

Well that was me by myself, no help, and I had my 4 year old at home with me. Ok, I'm out of excuses. The other side always went quicker though, I had a HELL of a time lining up the holes for the first AAL but the other side I got it on the first try. Glad it's done, my Method wheels should be in sometime this week, I can't wait.

Doing it yourself is always worth it no matter how long it takes cause when its all said and done you can step back and say "wow, i just did that" It Took me and trd7 about 4 hours to do his and took me around 2 hours to do my front coils but that was with a lift and fancy air tools

Yeah, no air tools for me, just ratchets and wrenches

I was dying for an air compressor and an impact wrench and air ratchet by the end.

But you're right, I love that when I get to work and show it off to people who took their trucks in to be worked on, I can tell them I did it myself biatch.

You didn't pay someone else to do it. That's the important thing. Feel good about yourself.
