    Basic handle tools is pretty much all you need. A spring compressor can help for the fronts but isn't completely necessary. Same thing with an impact gun (though might be useful if the car hasn't been worked on in years). Some penetrating oil will go a long way as well. The rears are much going to be much easier than the fronts and you can do them all in about 2 hours if you know what you're doing and there aren't any bolts giving you a hard time. There's plenty of guides online or even youtube videos you can follow.
