After a lot of swearing I managed to do it (nearly), my very kind neighbor loaned me his tools, my mate loaned me his pinch bar to lever the bottom arm down and my other neighbour loaned me some muscle as that is definitely a two man job lol so was a community effort haha! We only managed the fronts as I put them on, was too low (engine undertray scraping) so I wound the nut down, was still too low, so wound it down more and was too low to even get the jack out so thats when I realised I was windin the nut the wrong way haha, so I had to wind it up a $h!tload to make it driveable, by that point it was 8pm so time to call it a night, its comfortable to drive for the minute although a little high on the back end but I will hopefully get the rears fitted tomorrow they should be a lot easier. I'm hoping putting the rears on will stop it from doin such a 'nose dive' and level the front out a little more. Looks good tho, will upload some pics soon, just need some spacers now haha

Thanks for the kind offers shrek its appreciated mate but I should be ok now haha
