    Did both of mine.....motors are like $40 at Autozone.....used a Haynes manual.....first side took about 2hrs.....second side about 45min.....I used a Zip tie to restrain the spring/arm rather than drill it like the manual says.....do a search, and you'll find lotsa threads on this subject.....it ain't hard, just a little frustrating.....and yer prolly gonna bleed before yer done.....

    Stuck?...Hell no..I still got some gas left..

    did the drivers side a few weeks back. napa $40. i just unbolted the thing and wiggled it out the hole, but mine is an 89, dont know if it is diff or not. took the opportunity to clean out the bottom of the door and also installed some insulation. tried to find dynamat etc.., and could not, so i took a foil coated insulated windshield sunscreen and cut it into strips, and glued it to the inside of the door skin, and it makes a big diff in sound.
    good luck, and like was said, you will prob bleed, and it is not to hard just a little time consuming
