There are bolts at the top of each fender well inside the hood. Loosend them but leave them on.
You will have to remove the tire and possibly the brake. You might also have to remove the lower control arm. You will need a jack or a spring compressor, you have to have a compressor if you are tranferring springs, to get the suspension to compress. Once all the bottm is removed, you may need to remove the lower wishbone shaped fork to transfer iot to the other strut. Remove the three bolts up top. Replace the spring with a compressor and installation is the reverese. Make sure to lube all pivot points.
