Its a 3 hour job to replace the rear coil over shocks, you will be able to take them off but you ill need to get a tire shop to compress and replace the struts for you. There is a company that independent auto repair shops get their information from, this same information is available inexpensively for people that work on their own cars.. The information is year make and model specific, covering repair procedures, torque specifications, fluid capacities and specifications, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate http://bit.ly/AllData_Repair_Manuals_Online Look maybe at www.rockauto.com or call your local Napa get prices, call first and then see if a local shop is willing to compress and replace the shocks/springs before you buy parts or remove the shocks/springs.
