Default Need help with installing replacement OEM rear springs on '99 OBS

Hi all,

The stock springs on my '99 OBS have sagged to the point where my fender wells rub a little going over bumps, etc. So, I've ordered/received replacement OEM springs and I'm wondering what all needs to be done to replace them. Is it as simple as the following?
  1. Jack up one side of vehicle
  2. Remove tire
  3. Remove strut assembly
  4. Compress spring
  5. Remove strut bolt and remove spring
  6. Install new spring
  7. Compress new spring
  8. Tighten strut bolt
  9. Put strut assembly back on the vehicle
  10. Put tire back on
  11. Lower vehicle
  12. Repeat above steps for other side

I was looking for info in another forum, and someone mentioned that I'd need to get an alignment. What would go out of alignment besides the camber? There is no camber adjustment, is there?
