Front spring coil

I had a snap front spring and i told to my self i can change this ... I order some springs from ebay 2 for Ł41 with 2 years warranty and start the job.
It took me 5 hours for one spring. I manage to remove the broken one but i t was impossible with my tools to compress the new one, i end up in a garage and they put the spring back for me. Putting back the shock it was a hard and lucky my neighbour help me no way one person could put back the dam thing.
For the next one i will go to a garage, very hard without the proper tools.
Also change air filters...
