I thought I saw some pics a while back, but I can't find the original thread. Anyone?

Remember the rear bolts are all reverse threaded.

I would say maximum of five including the camber bolt. The hardest part is lining up the rear control arm with the suspension linkage, it is very easy to strip the threads off the bolt if everything in not lined up perfectly so be very careful.
