Edit: Pelican has just about all the suspension parts you need in their suspension wizard. You can go through the steps and there are pictures of what everything is for first-timers. You can create a wishlist of stuff as well. Its awesome. And, for n00bs, pelican parts has phenomenal customer support and amazing prices. I buy from them all the time, and definitely would recommend them
So, can I ignore the section on tools?, I already have a torque wrench, and I've replaced tie rods with just basic tools, and from what I've heard there is no reason to replace just a ball joint, so if I just get my coil overs pre
assembled and get urethane bushings that don't have to be pressed in, can I just install it all my self and then drive slowly and carefully to a shop to get an alignment?.
