    Yea, you need a spring compressor so that it doesnt bounce in your eye when you take it out. You can find it in your local parts shop for pretty cheap. Dont do it without, not recommended.

    Yeah be very careful. I don't know what kind of car you have or how new your struts are but if you don't also up grade you struts you won't have quite the ride you may be looking for. Stock struts will cause you to bottom out with aftermarket springs. Also the ride is very bouncy and you will actualy loose stablity instead of gaining it. A cheap but very good strut is KYB AGX or the G2's. Just a suggestion.

    what kind of car do you have? I lowered my civic and I had to get adjustable compensator arms in the rear and adjustable upper control arms in the front to keep from having bad negative camber.
