If you were going to do one or the other, which gives better results? Anyone know- I'd guess at the top one, cos of the leverage the length of the strut gives from the chassis level will magnify movement?, and cos it costs more.

Mine was very easy, I fitted it at a friends workshop with the car up on a garage ramp, so no lying in the mud
True, you do fit the upper brace while standing up! They sometimes need a little persuasion to fit because the four studs that the brace fits onto are not vertical (i.e. parallel to each other) each pair of studs are at an angle leaning towards the centre of the car.
If you don't want to get dirty under the car fitting the lower brace you could ask the garage to fit it when your car is in for its next service (it will only take them five minutes to fit).
