Default Front struts on my bonnie

How tough is it to replace front struts? Average length of time? Special tools like a spring compressor? Is an alignment necessary afterwords? Brand recommendations?

Monroe Quick Struts Jay. About a 2 hour job. 3 or a little more if Beer or rusted nuts are involved. Nothing needed but a good ratchet set and some elbow strength. Rockauto.com is the place you wanna be for them, Jay. No alignment necessary if you dont move the toe. That'* all the adjustment you have. While your down there. give the end links a good look over.
