Looks great!

What was the most challenging part of the install? Strut removal?

Putting it back together, aligning everything with a floor jack! Not too mention a lift would be great.

Congrats, I don't think I could ever handle a job like that myself.

How does it handle compared to OE sport?

It is good, def a lot stiffer but the ride is still good! Only issue is speed bumps and low spots in the rode but all around much improved ride as far as performance goes!
