it's a walk in the park. If you were asking about adjusting your valves, i would advise you to think twice, but I did my own spring install, and had no problems (once i got the rear struts off spineyes)

Go for it, just take your time... and it never hurts to enlist the help of a friend who's done it before.

Yeah, I did my own springs/struts on my last car. You NEED a spring compressor, and they're self-explanatory. Very easy. thumbsup

They aren't dangerous. NOT using one is dangerous (e.g. some people use a jack and the spring could slip out under intense pressure) eek
