The shocks are very easy to replace. You have 2 bolts holding the bottem on and 1 on the top. Remove the from wheels. You can use common ratchet set. Don't take to shop. Replace them yourself. Will take no more than an hour with an unexperienced mechanic.. The rear are the same, except do not remove the wheel. Easy stuff.

Jack car up and remove tires for easy access, then simply unbolt front shocks and replace with new shocks. On the rear some models come with a type of ride leveling shock that will be noticeably fatter than a normal shock, this type of shock called Nivomat MUST be replaced with a comparable expensive Nivomat shock or you need to buy a replacement kit that includes new springs and regular shocks, this kit uses different springs to compensate for the non Nivomat shocks. To replace rear shocks you would follow similar steps to the front, jack up car, remove tires and simply unbolt the shocks and re-install the new shocks in the same order.
