the down side to changing the spring is that, well what i found is that on trying to release old anti roll bar links aswell as the track rod end, they sieze and have to be grinded off!!! new oem parts are a bit more expensive but work it, along with a long coil spring compressor and new upper strut bearing and bottom arm seen as your going full hog cost me around 185 but that includes the compressors. and around 7 hours potching for the amateur for the first side. im hoping the other-side will be easier to do now i know whats involved, but hey, what would a garage charge for it, and you have your own piece of mind on the job mate. a bottle jack is dead handy on pressing the strut back into the hub, and make sure you aline the strut lump into the hub split aswell as using the jack to help press new arm ball joint into the hub, a torque wrench doesnt go amiss also!!! hope this gives you piece of mind to go for it, aswhen you get it done, satisfacton is garuateed believe me....
i forgot to say that you can take 60 off as the springs which are qh and the arms which were tru part came as a pair at 120!!!! good night
