I posted all the links to replace the entire suspension earlier in the thread from CED. The only other thing you'll need is a spring compressor for the fronts. I got mine from Harbor Freight for like $10.
I had that spring compressor also for $10. It's not any good. the threads managed to strip causing it not to turn anymore and get jammed. This was while doing the 2nd spring.
It was to the point where it did not move either way.
I had to go take another car and go to Auto Zone and rent one to compress the spring even more to get the POS off.
The next day i took it back to the store and got my $10 back.
You can see in the pic where the black arrow is where the threads are gone.
Just save the hassle and rent the Auto Zone one.
They ask for a $50 Deposit. But when you return the tool you get your $50 back.
So it's really free.
