I can help you out with the TBE. The springs on the other hand would need more man than I have. And more tools. Though you can rent that which you don't have at Autozone for free.

I did my springs without compressors. Not too hard, just take it real slow and real easy and it went fine. Once you have lowered springs on it's a piece of cake since they're not so tight on the struts as the stock pieces.

For the springs you need;
2 19mm wrenches
1 19mm socket
1 17mm socket
1 12mm wrench
1 12mm socket
1 big ratchet
1 medium ratchet
Pliers
big flat blade screwdriver
Maybe a breaker bar
And spring compressor would help with the fronts
Are you going to install aftermarket camber bolts in the rear ?

Funny,I'm doing the springs right now

Thumbs up

I did my springs on my GSX without a hitch for the first time with no suspension experience and it wasn't bad at all. This link is for a DSM but it has the general idea:
