Don't let anybody tell you otherwise, you can do it, we are not talking rocket science, just regular no-nonsense mechanical work, that might require a little elbow grease. Don't forget to follow some basic safety precautions when working, such as put jack stands in addition to the jack when under the car, wear eye protection when drilling or screwing ( no, no that kind), disconnect battery if you are doing electrical, don't smoke around fuel and chemicals (that can be later ), use proper light so you can see what you are doing, consulting the shop manual will help in many things ,etc... SAFETY COMES FIRST.
