That particular process is pretty involved and potentially dangerous if not done correctly. Failure to use the proper tools and safety equipment can cause you to end up with a coil spring imbeded in your forehead.

I would suggest that if you are really interested in DIY on this particular job, that you purchase a Chilton/Haynes manual at a local auto parts store for the exact description of the process along w/ helpful picutres. You will need to rent/purchase a strut spring compressor in order to perform the repair as well.
