    2002 bad rear stuts

    hey i need to replace one of my rear struts and since im gonna have the car up in the air id figure i might as well do both. i will be doing it DIY to save money. but im looking online for the struts and there are so many kinds. i just want the basic OEM struts i can pick up at my local auto parts store. Anyone out there work on an 02' rear struts? heard its a pain. But it will save me a few hundred bucks. i just need to know things like. do the new struts come with the springs and everything? a lot of sites online dont show the springs on them. and how would i go about taking the old ones out and putting the new ones in. im guessing i need to take out my back seat and more to get to the mounts. just some help and tips to make it go a bit smoother for me would be great. wanna fix the bumpy ride.

    You'll need an alignment. While you're taking them apart now, you may as well do all four.
