It should take you guys 2-3 hours.

One note though, the nut supplied for the top of the strut will not thread all the way on the strut shaft when you install the new struts on upper mount. You can do one of two things; you can use the old nut from your original struts or you can use the supplied nut with some thread lock. both solutions are acceptable.
