lol well it helps. the front and rear are totally different designs and yes you will have to get your soft girly :p hands dirty by getting down onto the ground ;)

looking at the back of the car, where the big yellow arrow is is the bottom of the damper. can't really see the other side because of the exhaust.

second photo is taken from just underneath the back of the car, near the base of the damper. You can see the trailing arm, damper, spring, handbrake cable and back of the wheel wheel.

the centos are independant all round, you can get the rear springs out by jacking up the car and pulling it out, 35mm lower for an s is good, lower and speed bumps become harder to take (at speed anyway!)
