    Do you have the equipment or tools to collapse the spring and switch the struts?

    you can get spring compressors to use free at advanced auto you need to put one on each side and crank down to compress the spring then you can remove the strut and replace it with the new one. if you are not care full you can get hurt badly so no interruptions and pay attention to the job or get some one who has done it before to help you the first time.
