    You will need a spring compressor, and a spanner that will fit over the nut on the top of the strut that holds the plate in place when the spring is realeased. It needs to be a deep ring spanner. If you are not too sure how to change the coil springs it is best to get someonr to do it for you. If you do a search, you will find a "how to" for changing the front springs.
    Try here.
