Ok I need to install my front struts. How hard is it to install these, do I need to get my hands on a spring compressor or do they just fall out when I loosen up the upper nut?? or do I need anything else to install these???

Thanks

They aren't too hard at all. Definatly get a spring compressor for the front ones. Make sure you have a shop manual...you will need to align the upper insulator with the strut correctly.

should I get it aligned after I put them in, I'm not lowering it or anything just the new struts since one of them busted on me. Also where can I get a shop manual I've looked everywhere and cant find one, dont wanna try and get one through the dealership. My A$$ always hurts when I leave there.

i couldn't get the top bolts off my front struts, had to take them to a muffler shop to use an impact wrench on em. Just warning you that might happen.
