My short shifter and coilovers should be here in abuot a week and i was wondering if anybody could point me in the right direction for installing them. Is there anything I should be careful about when installing these, also how long should I expect to spend on each one considering i've never done it before. Thanks.

I live in Annapolis and can help you with the install. I have air tools and can have everything done in less than 2 hours.

I recommend using air tools to take off your shock assembly. The bolt that connects the strut to the LCA is prone to be permantly seized. I used hand tools and broke both bolts and was forced to drill them out (10 hour detour). Using air tools will hopefully free it no problem. You will need to rent a spring compressor too.

Short shifter install is relativly easy, just read the info on that site posted up top.

I know very little about cars, and did my coilover install myself.
Ran into problems , and fixed them too, with no outside help. It's a fun project, so i'd say do it yourself. You learn alot about how the stuff works.
