Strut extras?

I'm about to put new KYB GR-2 struts on my car and was wondering what else I would need beside the actual strut itself. BTW, I'm doing the job myself.

if you are using the stock springs I would suggest a spring compressor. It would be a beyatch to put on the stock springs.

I am using the stock springs but I can use the compressor at auto hobby shop on base. The auto hobby shop is a place that every military installation has and they charge you an average of about $4 an hour to use a lift to do anything you have to do to your car from oil change to engine swap to repainting your car. They have every tool you might even need in there and all you have to pay is the lift fee. They even help you out if you don't know what you're doing. I can't really complain about that.

As far as extras I meant bushings, etc. Anyone know of anything I might need?
