Jack- You must be pretty tough on that car of yours. Shocks usually last a long time, at least 75,000 miles, and they don't have to be replaced unless you notice some noticeably rough riding or leakage. If you do need to change them all it takes is jacking the car up, releasing a couple of bolts and making the swap. The guys at the parts store can fill in the details for you. Good luck from Bovan.
