You mentioned something about that before. You can get the spring compressor from any autoparts store for free. Then it just takes basic mechanics tools and brute force lol. When you go to pop the rear springs out just jack it up under the spring cup and tie off the spring with some heavy duty wire. Lower it down and they will fall out, no risk of snapping any bolts that way. The fronts are easy, just the top 3 bolts and the lower compression bolt, followed by the endlink. overall not too bad.

I say this now, eventhough it was a pita for me to do, but I learned from my mistakes and looking back on it, it's actually pretty easy to do yourself!
