    Anyone know what it would cost a shop to throw on some UCAs for me? I'm thinking it's probably not something I can do easily without a lift in my garage. I know an alignment usually runs like 80 bucks...

    A buddy and I did it...Let's just say I don't have the greatest mechanical skills. You will need to grind down bolt so that you can slide it into the engine bay. If it's something you are up I'd say it's worth doing along with a friend.

    you dont hafta grind down a bolt. read an install thread. you can bend the inner fender a little bit and use a 1/4" ratchet extension and drive the bolt out.

    I put mine in at the same time as the new front coilovers....not so hard except removing the damned UCA bolts.....many just cut and buy new ones....We just bent the inner fender lining a bit and used some old fashioned elbow grease...

    This is exactly what I did. I just wish I had a longer extension, I only had a 6 inch. You need a hammer and a pry bar does wonders also. The only time consuming part was bending & cutting the inner fender, then using a hammer to whack it back in to place. Other than that it's not too bad.
