There is a sweet DIY in the Suspension Performance section of this web site for lowering spring install. The shock install would be easy as you would just throw the springs on after you take them off the old struts. The two installs go hand in hand.

But if no one is available to do the install, go to Frisby Tire. They are the breast. This way if anything goes wrong, you have a reputable shop to turn to, to fix the error UNDER WARRANTY.
