how hard will it be to take my Koni coilovers off my car by myself? i have done some work on my car but never anything this big. i installed my short shifter, boost gauge, done some other interior stuff, and modded my airbox but i dont want to get myself into something that ill srew up. how hard is this job....and i dont need a spring compressor right? because the spring is self compressed on the strut right?

It's just unbolting bolts. Spring compressor only if you want to remove the springs from the struts. Otherwise unscrew and remove.

if you just want to take them off and look at them, you wont need a spring compressor. but the coilover is part of an assembly with the mounting hardware that attaches the top of the shock to the car. if you want to sell or adjust them, you will have to seperate the coilovers from this stuff, and that will require a spring compressor.
