I guess it really depends on luck, I did it totally by myself in a bit under 2 hours [hint, really strong magnets make it easier]
amgnets. elaborate on this
well since no one was willing to help me install it, I kinda had to do it solo [which is rather difficult to hold a bracket on the outside of the car and wrench the bolt in from the inside of the car]. What I did was drill my holes from the inside of the car. take the bracket, insert one bolt in backwards [as a guide to line it up], place the bracket in its mounting location. Place one massively powerfull magnet against the bracket [taken from a 15 year old server hard drive]. Go inside the car, insert the bolts, go back to the outside, remove the "pilot" bolt and insert it correctly.... then repeat for the remaining 34 brackets.
Not to rehash an old thread but whats the secret for the back 2 brackets on the bottom...theres no for my hands to fit up in there to hold the damn bracket...i took the sway bar bushing off but that don't help much....only way i can see is to remove the subframe which i dont wanna do....HELP!!!!!
