I actually just changed my front springs today, and for a first time, man did it take a while.
But boy was it satisfying :D
But once I'd done one side, the other side was easy as! No time at all.
I had a mate help me which makes a world of difference time wise.

It is easy, so if you've done it before, shouldnt be a prob.

its not overly hard, but it is time consuming. just be carful when unbolting the old spring from the strut.

Yes, just make sure you compress the spring adequately,
took me half a day to do one by myself. did the other yesterday with a mate and it only took 2 hours.
