Could someone with a workshop manual be my bestest buddy n scan a few pages from it for me, im after how to correctly remove the springs n shocks from my 4thgen, i showed dad who is capable of doing it, but he said to get some more info just to make sure.

do you want to take the spring out from the shocks or the whole suspension out?
the workshop manual requires you to have tools which i doubt you'll have
here's a good diy:
it similar with 4gen but missing a few things like:
front: take out bolts that attaches brake line to shocks
rear: bolts that connected sway bar from L bracket along chassis rail

you might have to buy a new set of bump stop
the front are easy to come out
the rear a bit tricky to come out
