Yes not a fun job. First it depends on the threaded fitting about were the ac compressor is to if you have to use both halves or can get away with just one. The redo of the lines changed the sides that were male and female so that is why you need them all if it was the earlier design. So check there first and spray it with penetrating oil. Sometimes the one side won't spin if you are in a salt area and that becomes a problem.
Then comes the fun of the actual install. It is difficult but I have done it by lowering the rear of the subframe. You will have to remove the passenger side axle if you try this way. You will still have to fight a lot to get those things done. Ofcourse when I have done this job it has been on a rack but I can't remember if the line needed the extra height to be changed or not. Also I use a 22 mm universal socket that I made extra shallow to get to the banjo bolt. Let me know if you have any other questions. Good Luck, Bernie
