Struts are in the front and those take a bit of time. If you have an impact wrench ($30-$100 average), then you can get it done pretty quick. It is 3 bolts on each one and just make sure to have 2-3 jacks to make it easy. The shocks are in the rear and are fairly easy. Just drop the live axle by undoing the bottom bolt of the shock then find the top bolt and its out.

Hope this helps! BTW is your car lowered at all?

Yeah. For a lowered car you don't need adjustable. Just shocks and struts made for it. Tokiko are some of the best.

I have been looking at those and I think kbg. Not sure if kbg is for lowered vehicles but tokico is for cars lowered up to 2" I think.
