    pull up the carpet in the trunk... find the top of the tower. loosen all the bolts holding it into place. get out, take the tire off. there is a bolt that goes through the bottom of the strut/shock. take it out. then go back into the trunk and take all the bolts off. the strut will fall out. then take an impact wrench to take of the spring compression thing and it will come apart. take the coil off and replace the shock/strut. you'll need to take the assembly to someone with a spring compressor to put it back together. hope this helps.
