I took measurements in 2 different locations:

RR: 14.25" 14.375"
LR: 14.375" 14.25"
RF: 14.5" 14.75"
LF: 14.5" 14.5"

That thread has pictures of the critical steps of the rear.

I needed/used:

1/2" drive (for taking suspension off of the car and putting it back on):
metric sockets
breaker bar
ratcheting wrench

I also used pass-thru sockets (seen in the link below) to aid in disassembling and re-assembling the spring/strut combo.

Metric box end wrenches

3/8" drive (to remove the upper mounts):
ratcheting wrench
metric sockets
Extension bar (12" I believe)

Jack and jackstands
Wheel chocks (or bricks) for the front wheels
