    I did it! I took photos and everything, I posted the procedure here:

    the complete set of pictures are here:

    The front gained I think as much as 1.5 inches of height above the wheel. I'm not a fan of low riders. so I'll take the inch anyday! There is absolutely no more metal on metal rattling noise from the car now when I go over bumps in the road.

    There is still a rubber on rubber sound coming from somewhere which I suspect is the rears now, since the shop also said those were bad, but not as bad as the fronts. I'm saving the rears for the fall since with this weather we're having I think by march it'll be convertible weather. and I wont be driving the Seville as much!

    Thanks Don for all your help, there is DEFINATELY noticeable improvement in the ride quality now. When I go to Detroit next weekend i'll be able to test it out on the highway.

    I also feel no difference in steering so maybe I don't need the alignment? I am probably going to take it in anyway. I need a coolant flush as well.
