It's easy. Esp with coilovers since you don't have to take the assemblies apart. It's vey much like a VW golf in how it's set up (the back is about as easy as it gets though) Taking your sweetas_sed time I'm guessing an hour at the most.

Yeah I think its a straight forward process. Ive done them on a SVT Focus before and it was easy. Once I saw how simple the job is on the 500, I was also embarrased I didnt do it myself. Ive got a set of coilovers coming as well and come spring time I will do them myself

Hey Joe, not sure what my exact height setting is at, but hopefully after you saw how the car is sitting you have a better idea.

^ I think they ride slightly firmer/tighter than the factory sports suspension. depending on your road conditions you may feel a bit more of the roads imperfections.
