You say 1 hr, my experience says that every "If you move it just so" and "using this tool, you can squeeze in" won't work as planned, but that's due to inexperience. I've got one helluva rattle from the front passenger side that's getting worse though, so I'm gonna be doing this as part of a suspension overhaul, so a week here or there won't hurt .
It's great to see a DIY written up so clearly, as always. It's also great to see a procedure that doesn't involve removing 3/4 of the car!
