It's not that hard. Jack your truck up take the wheel off, it's a 23 mm socket to get the cam bolts off the upper control arms. Not sure about the lower. Make sure you get two sets of cam bolts. Each box has two in it. Two for each side. So you'll need two cam bolts for the driverside and two cam bolts for the passenger side. Labor time wise since it's your first time doing this, it will take atleast half a day. Power tools are a plus and also get a Chilton manuel. If you need any help pm Sandman. Hes a Ford mechanic.
