    Both front or rear its a duplication of labor to remove the shocks to later replace the springs or remove the springs to replace the shocks.
    To replace the front springs both sides or front struts in either case is about 2.5 hours plus steering alignment as required. Replace spring or shock replacement is about 2.8 hours
