not bad tbh. Pretty much the same as a bug, just bigger.
Take all the trailing arms etc off with the beam in place and then take the stripped beam off, otherwise it's very heavy. If your ball joints are ok, just undo the grub screws that hold the arms to the torsion bars and take them off in one go and replace in one go.
