Default Installing struts

How hard is it to change all four struts on a 1988 Honda Prelude?
Anyone have any experience doing this?

They're not "struts".

You gonna swap springs, or do your new ones come with springs already? If
you're not swapping springs, the job is a piece of cake, and you don't even
need an alignment after.

I'd strongly recommend an electric impact gun (like a DeWalt DW293),
rentable for about $25 per day. Getting the lower bolts undone can be a
nightmare without the impact gun.
