Yeah, there a couple things you must know/do.
What brand is it? Fox, Rock Shox....etc.
There should be a threaded collar on one end of the spring. This increases or decreases the preload. Back that all the way off and measure the "unsprung" length of the spring. You'll need the same or close to the same length for the replacement.
You'll then need to remove the shock from the bike.
That threaded collar should do one of two things. Loosen all the way off the end of the shock body, or loosen enough so that the retainer clip on the other side is loose enough to slide off and the spring will slide off as well.
