Tools needed?

I'm going to attempt to install my new shocks and struts on my own. Any advice and info on the supplies I will be needing for the job ?

Basic tools. Plus a spring compressor for the front.

Re: Tools needed?

just basic tools, you dont need a spring compressor, just a floor jack/jack stands. You can read my spring install how to, just ignore the part about pulling out the springs and add the part about removing the shock bolts on the knuckle and pulling the shock out etc.

It can be hard to remove the strut due to it spins when you try to remove the nut FYI, read the how to in the article section for spring install.
