Shock installation

Hi everyone, could someone tell me the procedure for changing shocks?? I went to get shocks today and the guy said he would put them in for $100- as far as I can tell it is only two bolts- He said it involves more than that- so I told him to forget it. 2003 f250 6.0 thanks for the info

jacker her up a bit. put it on stands. and do like stump said. pretty straight forward. Of course i like to use air and my impact for removing the bolts. they can be stubborn sob's. Torque wrench to re install bolts. Definitely not worth paying 100 bucks for. Probably take you longer to get the wheel off then to change the shock.

Simply changing 2 bolts of the shock. Just remember it is compressed when on the truck so jacking it up will help extend the shock for removal and installation...
