Yes and no. You'll need a few extra items, but nothing thatis going to cost you big time. The 2 most important (out of the ordinary) tools you'll need are : 1. 32 mm (I think) axle nut socket (which you can 'rent' from autozone for a fully refundable $18) 2. 4' section of steel plumbing pipe (which I bought at Home Depot for $4.95) You'll also need a torque wrench capable of at least 220 lb-ft (also can be 'rented' from AutoZone), and a 1/2" bit breaker bar. You will also need circlip pliers, if you don't have them. When I did this job, it took me about 4 hours to do one side, and an hour and 45 minutes to do the other. being prepared, and knowing what to expect will make all the difference in doing this job. If you need help, let me know. Good luck!
