Spend a couple more bucks and get the Hotchkis one... it looks better too.

I installed it myself with help from my Dad. What you have to do is pop up the pins on the housing underneath the windshield wipers. Then you can get under them to access the strut bolts. Undo those bolts (You'll need a socket wrench) and take them off. Now.... the Driver's side bolts are gonna be a bit tougher. 1 of the nuts (the rear one), when loosened all the way, will be fairly flush against the housing, so you may have to jack the car up and push down on the tire so that you can pull the bolt off. Then put on the strut bar, and bolt it all back down. I would get a Torque wrench too, so you can torque the bolts back down the proper amount. It's not that hard an install..
