Strut replacement? on 2002 Ford Taurus

Is this as easy as I'm imagining? Remove the top mounting bolts,loosen the clamp at the bottom,and misc attachments,and it just pulls out of the control arm with enough clearance? Then I put in a quick strut or have my auto parts shop replace the strut unit itself?

Yep, I hear ya'! ;-) She's going on eleven,has 179k on the clock,these front struts are original,and clean as the car is in general,I do find things rusting away.
