What all do you need to do to remove the struts? Do you put the spring compresor on the spring then unbolt the strut assembley? How do you decompress the without it popping and killing yourself?
There are only 5 bolts/nuts that need to be removed for each strut. With that being said, it took me two days to to both sides in my car. The strut-to-knuckle bolts are the biggest pain. See here
for some tools you will probably need. The spring compressors are used when the struts are removed from the vehicle. The springs are compressed prior to removing the top nut (so you don't kill yourself) and to reinstall onto the new struts.
