Front shocks replacement (Mac Pherson).
To give an idea of the job if you want to do it yourself or if a pro do it for you. it's just to give an idea i'm not a pro. Only special tool needed is a spring compressor. This job must be done with the hands and the brain. There is a very big tension on the spring once compressed. Compression must be equally distributed on the two compressors and they must be positionned in a symetrical way .

Front Strut Replacement, 2001 Honda Odyssey -EricTheCarGuy
You can also use this video if you have a Ridgeline, Pilot, or MDX. They share a similar chassis to the Odyssey. The job in this video was not without it's challenges ad you'll see when you watch it. To be honest, if you need to do this job I would recommend 'quick struts' that come preassembled, or taking your old struts to a shop to have your new struts installed. Both spring compressors that I tried were a fail. The only thing that worked was a wall mounted unit. Also, those stabilizer links can be tricky. Start by soaking them with some penetrating oil and cross your fingers. If that doesn't work you may need a torch. In fact, you may need new stabilizer links before it's all said and done. Outside of those issues, this job isn't too bad. Here's some links for you. There is an extended version of this video with extra footage available to Premium Members of EricTheCarGuy.com.
