OK so good and bad.
Good: bought the front pair on advancedauto.com (extra 15% off for buying online and just choose pick up at store) for around 85 bucks. Plus they throw in a $10 rebate for each one and a $25 off $50 on a later purchase. Great deal. And they lend the 3 piece socket kit for doing the job.
Bad: can't get those damn things out. Tried it cold, nothing. Tried it hot, nothing. I'm going to get w can of pb blaster and see if that does the job.
So if anyone is thinking of doing it, get on it now. And if anyone has a better way to remove them let me know.
