quick struts are essentially loaded struts, meaning they are complete top to bottom, where as econo struts use your existing springs, meaning you have to disassemble your old struts to get your springs off. this can be very dangerous even with the proper equipment.

i always use quick struts.
as for any tips, i've never done them on your model of jeep, but as with many other vehicles, they should be pretty straight forward.
with some vehicles, i mark my holes, even tho they don't need to for most part, but i just do it out of habit. but they should just go in one way.

do one side at a time so you can refer to other side if you get stumped.

Thanks for the quick reply CAGED. I wasn't sure if this the way to go.

My main concern is how to handle the double wishbone by myself, another set of hands/eyes is always useful, but I may be on my own for this one!!
