The install is very very tedious but
(somewhat) DIY-able. When mine were
installed, there were at least 4 hands
working on my car.

(1) I recommend at least two people
work on it.
(2) The whole trunk carpeting must
be removed.
(3) The shocks must be supported below
once the shock tops are removed!
(4) While one person works at the top
of the shock tower (in trunk), the
other should work below, where the shock
enters the frame and into the trunk.
