    You will need spring compressors, a deep swan necked spanner 21mm IIRC and a good solid jack and stands. Over and above standard half inch drive sockets etc

    The damper top nuts, they are sunk down quite a bit and you need to be able to get an allen key through the centre to hold the damper piston still.
