Its actually a pretty fast process. Mitsubishi Galants are equipped with Mcpherson struts (which basically is the strut, shocks and coil spring all in one unit). I give a general idea of what you'll need to do. I'd buy a repair manual ($15) to know the step by step. 1)lift car and remove the tires (make sure parking break is off if your doing the rear struts) 2)remove break calipers and/or drums 3)disconnet control arm and tight rods 4)to remove the struts in the front lift up the hood and locate the attaching bolts that are on the frame on each side for the rear you'll have to remove the rear seat and rear windo panel 5)to remove the coil springs you'll need a coil spring compressor. Normally you can loan this from the auto part store, but for $30 might as well but your own. 6)instalation is the reverse. Make sure you get aligment done afterwards just in case.
