Drivers side was a royal pain in the ass. dip stick in the way, steering arm and the starter. After I got it done I swore never again and that I will pay someone next time. But yes you can do it yourself.
I figured that there had to be something! I noticed pics with all the steering arm there. what about removing the arm at least and mmmm the starter. Id have to examine that. might not get starter back in! I know how it is with bolts and stuff. been there. my nissan titan had to jack up the engine and remove mounts to get to one side. crazy.

thanks. so BBK you got. how are they? lasting coatings?
