hotchkis drop spring install

By chevygirl_78

For christmas my parents got me some 2" drop hotchkis springs. I want to install them but I have no idea where to begin installing these springs. I havent done extensive front suspension work like this before, and no one will help me with this project. What do I need to do? I already know i need to replace the ball joints and what not. From what I can tell they are original since they are riveted in and not bolted in or pressed in. Help please!

Any good suspension shops in your area? I had issues with my car that left me stranded so I ended up going to a shop that knew what they were doing. Yea, it costs a little money but in the end, the result was well worth it.
