I installed mine a couple of months ago and it can be installed using sockets and end wrenches. The only challenge is removing the nuts on the straight axle so you can install the mounting plate. As long as you have the correct socket size and a breaker bar, you shouldn't need the impact. It will take a little longer to perform without the impact but can be completed without.
Or... this could be a great excuse to purchase an electric impact gun instead of paying for installation. Now you will always have an impact gun.
