First, I attached the removal and installation directions first, pics 1-3. The remaining pics are the directions for disassembly and reassembly of the strut unit.
You will need a coil spring compressor to do this. Most parts stores will lend one to you. Now, when you install the compressor tool, make sure it is tight, secure, and can't slip. If the tool would let go once the coil is compressed, it could cause serious harm. Keep in mind, that is what holds the vehicle up, so it is very strong.
Let me know if this helps or if you have other questions.
See pics below.
