1le suspension swap

hey all, I am swapping from my fe3 suspension set up to the 1le sways/control arms/end links. i just had a question or two concerning the lower control arm and the rear shock. how hard is it to put back onto the control arm? i guess my concern is how difficult will the whole process be to install all the parts?

For me it wasn't that hard it just took so time. Changing the rear toe links was the most difficult part of the process. But i did the full kit. If your not changing the shocks then its easy. Just remove the control arm and mount the new one. you will probably have to compress the shock a little as it'll move outward after you take the control arm off. It should all line right back up otherwise. Then the sway bar will take a bit of maneuvering to get in but isn't too difficult.
