hi

 

bought mine off Ebay and they took about an hour and half a side using hand tools (no air tools)

 

One tip is to put spring compressors under lower spring platform and keep spring in situ if only doing bearings as it compresses the spring more and safer!

 

the other tip is to make sure the bolts are put back in the same places on the top mount as they are different and will knock if not put back in the same positions
