ok... basically all i do is jack the car up... take the wheel off... loosing the bolts on top by the strut tower (in engine bay) then loosen the bolt that attaches the fork to the axle or controle arm.. whatever the fuck its called... excuse my french :rolleyes: . then i take those bolts off... the whole strut/shock assemply should pop off... then compress spring... take off upper mount... then take stock spring out.. decompress spring... compress new spring.. put it in... put mount back on... then put strut assembly back in and then repeat it 4 times?

please correct me or fill me in on any extra measures i will need to take... also... would this link help me out in installing springs? http://www.overboost.com/story.asp?id=266

I want to do mine my self too, but being that I am at school it is going to be hard to do. If I can get my hands on some air tools, I will do it.

I should have it in about a week, so I'll post pics.

You dont need a spring compressor if you got the balls to stick the sping assembly against a bank and let the strut shoot out thats what I do though it is scary. I had to pop the upper ball joint on my Integra before I could get the spring assembly out.
