How do you install front coil springs on a 1967 Impala?
That can be a very dangerous task. You will have to have a coil spring compressor. Jack up the car and use jack stands and NOT cinder blocks. Remove the wheel. Remove the shock absorber. Install the spring compressor through the opening and compress the spring. Put a hydraulic jack under the lower control arm. Take the lower ball joint loose and slowly lower the jack. Remove the spring and slowly release the tension until the spring is extended. Remove the compressor and install it on the new spring. Insert the spring back into the cavity and jack the lower control arm back in place and connect the ball joint. I truly do NOT recommend that you do this. It will be cheaper and safer to have a shop that specializes in front end repairs to do it for you.

What special tools are needed to change struts on a 1996 Dodge Caravan?
The only, "special" tool required, is a spring compressor, for the suspension coil spring. Some parts stores rent/loan them out. If you are replacing the factory struts with,"quick struts" (preassembled springs, struts, and mounts) you won't need this tool. If not, using quick struts. You will need a spring compressor. You can take the whole strut assembly to a repair shop and they'll remove the spring for you. Don't attempt to remove the spring yourself (without a compressor), it is under a lot of pressure, even when removed from the vehicle, and you could be injured.
