Curious why it's taking 4 hours, was this full suspension replacement or just spring swaps.

I did my spring swaps on the floor in less than 1.5 hours

In my case,it took me more than 1.5 hours just jacking the car up and down for each wheel,on my sloped driveway..i also did not use a spring compressor.So it came out to and hour per wheel,taking my time.I dropped my c5 3 inches,they don't use coil springs though,took me about an hour and a half..

got the bmr panhard bar. the one with poly bushings on both sides. so far no issues, but of course it has been raining since i got it aligned so haven't really pushed it around any corners yet. it was very simple to adjust of course.
