backs are easy lift the car and undo the top and bottom bolt then lift the spring and shock out and reverse to put in.

front are a lil more difficult

remove the wheel once jacked up, undo bottom bolt, undo top bolts, undo the bolt for the arm thingy for the brakes (cant remember the actual name but it goes from the middle of the brake (spindle section) to a brace) then smack it out (may need a ball joint breaker) then the brake setup will drop and you remove the shock and spring setup, compress the spring with spring compressors (15 bucks at supercheap) then undo the top middle bolt and take spring out, the reverse.

it will pay to have someone there who knows what to do just incase...
