your going to need a set of spring compressors. you can pick a set up for like 30 bucks. the fronts arent bad but the rears are a bitch. good luck

Autzone rents you out the compressors for liek 40 bucks, but then when you turn the compressor back in, they give you the 40 bucks back!! And if your gonna do it yourself, your gonna need a hydraulic lift, two jacks, or 4 if you can afford it, but i recommend only 2!! Its all you need, just do one side at a time, then, you'll also need a torque wrench, misc other tools, they have two different types of spring compressors, one that compresses the spring itself, and one that clamps to the bottome of the the strut and compresses the spring while its one the strut, your gonna need that one!!

yes, the coil type compresses the spring itself, the strut type compresses the spring to the strut!
