Camber arm install

So, I'm about to try again for a second time to replace the stock camber arms in the rear with adjustable ones. I gave up the first time after removing the bolt on the hub with the brake assembly after looking at the 2nd bolt in the center of the car under the exhaust. I decided to take it to a couple of shops for some quotes. The first shop quoted me $250 to replace them and the second shop quoted $650. I refused both since it should be a 30-60 minute easy job if you have a lift. The problem is, I am lying on my back on my garage floor and don't have one. So, is it worth it to pay or is can someone guide me on the inner bolt removal? I can't see if there's a nut on the other side of the bolt and am not 100% sure if I have the right tools to reach the bolt/nut. Any tips? This looks like a really easy job for a pro with all of the right tools and a lift.

Please offer advice, I'm going to try again tomorrow to save some money. Thank you!

Looks like this is my answer, two 18mm open end wrenches, I only have one. Will have to go shopping tomorrow morning. https://www.pelicanparts.com/techart...stallation.htm
