lol, you guys just helped me do mine, and even though I'm confident with a wrench and do a fair amount of stuff to the car, the whole job took me about 10 hours total. That includes a fair amount of cleaning things, like the LIM and various bolts. I'll bet I could cut that in half if I had to do it again now that I know my way around the job.
Advice to the posters getting ready to tackle this, since I am fresh off doing this job for the first time... take your time, take pics of things along the way if you have a camera for reference, and enjoy the process. Messing with the car is zen-like for me.
A tip... I took the LIM to the local car wash, set it on the floor of the bay and hit it with the degreaser, then power rinsed it with the wand. Worked great. Just make sure it'* 100% dry before putting it back in place. I let mine sit overnight inside where it'* warm.
My thread about this job is still on the first page of this forum, use it, and Danthurs' write-up is very good, too. Between Dan and Bill, y'all will be fine.
