Get some liquid wrench, penitraiting oil, or wd40 and spray the nuts and bolt before you do the job (the night before is a good idea), and remove the back seats speakers, and rear deck carpet so that you can do the job first thing in the morning.
Get the tierod puller and spring compressor from a local parts store (most rent them for free with a refundable deposit. The newer strap type compressors are nicer to use.
Mark your bolt locations before removeing them, It will make realinement much easier when you put it back together, also keep all the nuts screwed on there prospective threads as you will know, which part when where.
Use jack stands to lift the car so that you are not raising and lowering the car multiple times.
The other things like torque wrenches were already mentioned earlier.
If you plan on changing out your brake pads, rotors, speakers (rear deck) it is a good time to do that while you are at it.
