this is urgent since i must know before saturday morning!!
thank you!!
Everything is quite straight forward, but you'll need a spring compressor tool to compress the front springs.

The rest all you will require is a socket wrench and a set of sockets. A good 2 tonne jack and 2 jack stands should be fine.

If you're planning on swapping any springs from a 6 cyl into a 318 using the 318 strut, it won't fit. Just be warned.
