As GEP77 said really. I jacked the car up, removed the wheel and then gently lowered the disc onto a big wooden block, just enough to take tension out of the damper, removed lower damper bolt and then jack up again - spring just falls out. Insert new spring (I had to pry it in very slightly but didn't need spring compressor) and again lower onto the block to compress. Then you can easily insert the lower damper bolt and torque up, reattach wheel and all done. No special tools required, just a socket for the damper bolt.
