Make sure you replace the ball joints too (they are shot if they are old) search my threads and make your own press - makes it a walk in the park. Reason to say is that when you are replacing the struts it only takes a few minutes more to do the ball joints and also wheel bearings if you remove the hub.
Oh I'd love to do a complete suspension overhaul on this car. But right now finances are a bit tight, so it will be awhile.

The driver's rear shock mount (on the shock itself) broke and the shock was just poking out into the trunk area. The only reason I noticed was because it would rattle in the hole and I could tell it wasn't quite damping like it should in that corner.
