go out side and get to it
but seriously it is not hard to do at all. there rear take like 20 min max. jack up car, remove wheel, remove shock bolt, and yank that stock spring out. reverse that to put new one in. now the fronts... jack up car, remove wheel, remove stabilizer link bolt, remove the strut tower bolts at the top under the hood and the 2 that are right behind the rotor. after that it should drop out. now take the spring compressor(you have to rent this from a parts store) compress spring(once you have the tool it is self explantory) remove the top bolt from strut assembley and the spring will slide off. Now just reverse for new spring....NOW it is a little more involved heres the how to my bad on the ramblin on..
