DIY lowering spring install?

does anyone have any links or turtorials to a site that explains how to install lowering springs. I have a pro kit for my 04 civic coupe(1.7 drop).

I have no experience installing springs, and i know that its a long process but i would like to do it myself if possible.

Im pretty sure i could do everything except taking the stock springs off because i think you need a special tool for that? anyways. can anyone help me out. thanks

yeah you need a spring compressor. any auto parts store shoudl have one, and they arent that expensive.

the rear springs are pretty striaghtforward and dont take too long. the fronts suck if you have no experience. i had the same problem. just remember that you are gonna need an allen wrench to get the struts apart.
