The springs rarely go bad. but you have to be careful taking them apart they can be extremely dangerous and a pain putting them back together.

if you are only going to replace the shock portion, you will need a spring compressor. by the time you buy the tool, you may just want to replace the entire strut. it is much easier and safer for someone who is inexperienced.
