    depends how it looks. Fixing wires is easy, if you broke the housing, that might be hard.

    Any alignment shop should give you the printout with your receipt. If they don't, just ask for it :)

    But yes, both Lex Brodies and Goodyear gave me alignment sheets every time.

    The reviews say that it isn't a bad rig for $50 be something to start out with. Here on the island it shouldn't be that bad.
    My friend at work did it at 15, I work on electronics so it shouldn't be to bad.

    Thanks! I'll read over the practice exam. But so far, I was way more comfortable going to the firearms safety classes :D

    Be back in a few months. I've changed springs and added air bags before...never changed shocks. Could I do the Billy install without a garage lift and use just a jack and jackstands?

    I did my rear billies with jackstands under the frame and a floor jack under the rear axle.

    For the front coilovers, pull the struts and take them into the auto hobby shop at MCBH KBay. You can use their coil compressor machine for around $4-5 and it takes about 5 minutes (very easy). Not sure if Hickam's auto hobby shop has the same machine but I'd guess they do.

    If you don't have a 2nd car, just do the install at one of the hobby shops using their lift.

    I wanna do the firearms class when I get back hehe

    totally could. I did mine with a jack and some stands. stock springs can be compressed with with a spring compressor (i've used the crasftmen one from sears just fine).

    I could help with yours if i'm not deployed :p
