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.

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.
