If I remember correctly, when I did mine, it wasnt to bad to do. Getting the axle and trackbar back in position was a pain. You will want to have a ratchet strap or come-along handy for that.

Drilling new or increasing the size of the holes was easy.....the tough part for me was getting the bolts in. It takes very nimble fingers and some patience.

and angle drill was REALLY handy for me, especially on that top hole because it comes so close to the edge.
lifting up the diff a bit makes lining up the trackbar and axle pretty easy

the hardest part is probably getting the bolts, washers, and nuts all together on the bracket....just remember to breathe

I attached the bracket loosly to the trackbar first then lined up the holes on the oem bracket I've done 3 or four this way and it works
