I'm sorry to hear that. The fuel pump is in the fuel tank. Make certain that all the rest of the fuel system working before you have to drop the tank. 1.Fuel pump relay or any fuses.2.Replace fuel filter,(inline between tank ane pressure regulator). 3.Trace power and ground wires from tank back to relay looking for breaks or pinches. 4.Look for a pump reset switch. If all that is good, then replace the pump. Good luck.
The problem is that the springs have to be compressed. Its a dangerous job to do yourself for obvious reasons. I'm pretty sure you could rent a spring compressor from an auto parts store. The strut assembly is attached to the tie rod ends. You will need an alignment for sure.
Personally, I'd be hesitant to do it for those reasons. I'd say if you do it, please be careful that those springs are compressed properly and that you get that alignment after.
