Its a bit of a pain, the rears are quick to change. The fronts are a little more time comsuming.

Changed the shocks out this weekend and it took me longer than expected. They were the factory installed shocks with 153,xxx on them. I LOVE MY IMPACT WRENCH. This would have been impossible without it.
