The job is easy.....if you can get the top shock nut off. You Southern folks just have no idea how much harder these jobs can be up in the rust belt. If that nut is rusted solid it's a completely different ball game. I forget how long exactly but I think it took me about three hours to figure out how to do it then cut and grind down the two shock rods.I think this thread is giving people the impression that changing the rear shocks is something that's impossible to do. I really didn't find that difficult, and I did all 4 with my friend, and neither of us had experience changing shocks.
