It's actually fairly easy, the hardest part being breaking the bolts loose :)

I'd be more than willing to help, but this weekend is M-day, so that's out :( Does during the week work for you?

Keep in mind that you will need to get the car realigned afterward, which could run anywhere from $60-$160. While you're in there, I'd suggest putting camber bolts in the rear too, esp. if the coilovers are going to drop the car.

Good choice putting $4,000 rims on your 1990 Honda Civic. That's like Betty White going out and getting her tits done.

Not from hotsam @ turbometrics. Sorry, but when you say you have it in stock in woodbridge, and three weeks later, I get a shippment from another company of the wrong manufacturer, I cannot recommend.

I would recommend looking for the Whiteline concentric camber bolts.

I've been pretty tied up with work and other issues around the house. I might have some free time at the end of the month.
