I meant question-wise, haha. You'll need the right sockets/ratchets (air tools make it much easier if you have access to an impact wrench/socket), ball-joint puller or pickle fork, sledge hammer (or a big enough hammer to knock the stock spindle off of the lower ball-joints), locktite is a good idea when putting it all back on, new cotter pins are a good idea as well, and of course some time.
