here is a link on ecstuning on how to do the hatch pop mod.

for spring install just follow the coilover diy but for the rears just change the spring out. if you have xenons there is a leveler arm connected to the rear suspension arm that needs to be disconnected when changing the springs.

edit: you also can search vwvortex and golfmk5 for more how to's.
