As long as you are handy with tools and some what good with cars

this repair is not that hard. Basically you need to get each wheel

to hang freely (all at one or one at a time) to allow the

shock/strut to be fully open or un conpressed. For the rear remove

the trunk carpet and remove the bolt above the shock hump hold on

to all old hardware. Next remove the bolt and nut on the bottom of

the shock. Some rust pentraint works good here. Then remove the

shock and install new. For the front Basically the same procedure.

Open the hood and remove the 3 bolts holding in the shock assembly.

Then remove the bottom bolt and relpace with new.
