Do you mean the star bar for like replacing spare tires?? I can get that at auto zone. So all i pretty much need is a breaker bar and jack stands which i have. I have a step by step artical in an old issue of super street from jan 2002. its john hochkis putting springs and camber links on a celica.

Wow i need an air gun. Its difficult without power tools. Well i started with the back drivers side. I got as far as tripping out the trunk interior, taking off the tire, got like two bolts out. and like 2 hours went by. I chickened out and decided to assemble the whole thing back together. Except now i have a problem. I cant get the bottom of the strut assembly to line up to get the long bolt through. I need to pry hard to get it even close. My car is outside sitting on a jackstand because i'm screwed and cant get it back together...any ideas????
