Super easy install, takes about 10 minutes at the most. Screw off the old plates and plop the Dinan plates on there, then put on the strut bar, no problem.

The rear strut bar is harder to install, but not too difficult. It's only difficult because you have to cut through the carpet on the sides of the trunk.
