We just use all the U tube ones.  Generally find one specific to the type of car you are working on.  Watch and learn, then do. 
Looking to add fender trim, LED lights and a bumper push to the truck soon.

There's nothing drastically different from doing regular suspension work. Any how to for a normal set of struts etc will be fine.

Replace the upper strut bearings / mounts, they are cheap and the old ones are probably toast.
