need more info to help. are they just sleeves and springs or actual coilovers? i am guessing they are sleeves because coilovers are pretty self explanatory. just remove your old spring and shock. for the front 2 14m nuts on top and a 17m bolt on the bottom. it will be easier if you remove the fork for the front. for the back 2 14m nuts on top and 17m bolt on the bottom. you may also have to disconnect the lower control arm another 17m bolt (makes it hella much easier). now you need a spring compressor or you can live dangerously. use the spring compressor and loosen the bolt on top of the shock. use an allen wrench and i cant remember the size of the other wrench. unscrew it take off the mount and dont loose any of the assorted washers. take the spring off and install sleeve and spring. then put it all back together make sure to put the washers back right!!!! then put it back on. drink a beer and get ready to adjust the hell out of them to get your car even. i may have left some stuff out correct me if i am wrong.

if this is your first time attempting this, good luck and be careful. it could be dangerous if you are not mechanically inclined. read the sticky up top.

ask a friend to help. make the job much easier.
