Im not sure what bolt sizes you'd need never done them but I can say you'll need a spring compressor

Jack, jackstands, impact gun helps. No need to mess with the control arms and no need for a spring compressor. Just undo the strut, support the control arm with the jack and lower it little by little. Ive done it on 3 mustangs so far, and was able to pull the springs out by hand on all of them.

Super easy job, takes me less than an hour from start to finish. It will take you longer being your fist time, and based on what tools you have.

they sit right above the rear axle..no need to swap on the drop you're doing but can make the bumps a bit easier on you if you do replace with shorter ones
