Of course this is only the cartridge, you have to transfer the spring, and the top mount of the existing strut. You need a pair of coil spring compressor to do the job. The basic procedure to replace a strut is:
Remove the top nuts that secure the strut assembly to the frame mount inside the engine compartment. Do not remove the center nut.
Mark the lower strut mounting location on the hub for installation reference. The alignment will be close if the new strut is installed in the same position.
Remove the bolts that hold the strut assembly to the hub.
Remove the strut assembly from the vehicle.
Mark the top mount for installation reference. Using a side mounted spring compressor, compress the spring and remove the top nut and retaining washer. Pull strut assembly out from the bottom of spring.
Slide the new strut assembly up into the spring and reposition the top mount onto the spring in the same position that it was removed. Install the retaining washer and top nut.
Tighten the top nut to the manufacturer's specifications and carefully remove the spring compressor.
Place the strut assembly back into the vehicle.

You have struts in the front and rear of your vehicle. Typically they are recommended to be replaced around 60,000 - 80,000 miles.

Does the 97 vw golf gl 2.0 have 4 struts for suspension or is it struts in the front and shocks in the back?


struts in the front and shocks in the rear, the rear shocks have coil springs over the shocks, like the front struts, but you dont need to use a spring compressor tool on them which is neccessary on struts

Front and strut replacement, how?


Yes, you need a spring compressor. The sturt and coil spring come off as one. Then you need to compress spring to remove strut. The old one off and the new one on and then un-compress the spring and remount in car.
Sounds simple, but it can take a while.
