Need 5100 Write-up with pics

Can somebody please help me find a 5100 install write-up with pictures? The only write-up I can find is the sticky with the pics removed, and one other write-up with no pics attached. I've been looking but can't seem to find it. Thanks!

I used this one and found it helpful. The only thing it doesn't show is compressing the springs and swapping the stock coil from the old strut to the new strut.

Are there any specific to 5100s? Also, is it difficult compressing the springs? Do you need a special tool for that or will I just sit on it? Just kidding I won't sit on it.

You could sit on it, if you weigh over 1,000 lbs it might work but good luck getting the tops on

You need a spring compressor. Check either Advanced Auto or Autozone, one of them rents tools out so you don't have to buy one. Compressing the spring isn't overly hard but it certainly helps having air tools. The install thread specific to 5100's was the one you found, the pics are missing. Installing a front strut is the same whether it's an OME or Bilstein though.
