I did this five years ago; it is not a difficult job if you follow the 
directions.  Manual says: 1)Jack up front of car; place jackstands under 
center of front crossmember, until tires are clear of ground.
2)Remove front wheels; block up under chassis.
3) Place 2 more jackstands under spring pans.
4) Jack these up, taking some of the weight, until hydraulic damper 
levers are just clear of rebound rubbers.
5)Disconnect brake hoses.
6)Slacken tie rod nuts and unscrew tie rods.
7)Remove cotters and nuts from 2 outer fulcrum bolts.  Draw out the bolts 
and take away the front hub and swivel pin  units complete.
8) release the jacks from under spring pans.
9) Press down lower wishbone assemblies and remove coil springs.
>From there on its pretty straightforward.
