I did mine in less than 30 minutes and the XJ is bone stock.
No need to lower anything to get to it.
Changing the CPS can be real easy with the right tools.
I was faced with changing mine, when I got under there with a long extension and a ratchet I quiclkly realized I had the WRONG TOOLS.
I went back into the house and emerged with my AIR RATCHET
small compressor, long extension and socket.
With the above tools doing the CPS swap is a breeze.
I cannot tell you how easy having an AIR RATCHET has made my life many times.
Does two things well ....
1) Speeds up the work process
2) Allows me to get into areas ( like the CPS ) where a conventional ratchet just wont work well.
