My '89 Cougar was juiced. The rear is simple... cylinders popping up through the trunk. Unless you want to fabricate a strut/cylinder to replace the rear shocks.
The front of mine was really easy because the strut (in that year) didn't turn with the steering. I have an LHS now that does, but to be honest, it's almost as easy. (I think the '94 'Bird is the same way.) Use your existing strut, cut the shock out of it, weld on a donut and do a couple of reinforcing welds, then drop the cylinder right in. (Yeah it will be upside-down with the hose coming out of the bottom of the strut. Don't worry about it the cylinder doesn't mind.:) ) Replace your upper strut mount with at least 1/4" plate and you're all set. :)
