First Mods, wondering if it's that easy?

Just recieved the L&M lowering spring from NateDog. I was just wondering if it's actually as easy as they make it seem on the video, or will it turn out to be a 10 hour project. Figured I'd ask some of you guys that may have already done this. Any sugestions on compressing the shock to get the old one off and the new one on? I'm thinking about taking it to a shop to have them swap it.

I think i might also take off the rear tire off to put on the Side mount license that I pruchased from

Looks like it needs placed on the rear axle rod. Any suggestion for this one?

Here is pic when I changed mine. Used the Rod Press at my shop. Gotta be real careful though.

No, you would not need this fancy a press, but just giving you idea how can be done. Bike lowered just like L&M said it would with no problems even with a 240 avon tire. I have a 250 Avon coming and will be installing on a 8" wheel soon.
