I just put mine in last weekend.... be careful of the spot weld points above the drive shaft.... they are sharp as a tac... I just jacked the front of the car up and put it on jack stands... plenty of room... Had the dvd in my laptop under the car and it was spot on. I would say it was easy... I didn't have the racheting box end 10mm and that would have made it even easier...Good luck.. and you will love the shifter... I set mine to 5 turns
Did mine on jack stands as well. Wasn't bad at all. Got mine set to 10 turns . . . instructions say that 12 is the max . . . but there was some text on the actual shifting mechanism that said that 10 was the max . . . I stuck with 10 to be on the safe side.
Thats the beauty of this shifter, you can have it higher or lower than the stock shifter hight, I have mine at its highest setting since it makes the shifts more smooth... but I'm not gonna get into physics as to why
