It should be. To replace the front shocks, there are two bottom bolts to remove and one nut on the top of the shock. The rears have one top bolt and one bottom bolt. Just regular tools should be fine to do the job. I would also use some WD-40 to help loosen any rusty bolts.
There is a socket sold,for the ends of shocks.
If you can install it,you can hold and tighten the top nut.
Shocks have been like that for 40 years.
If your removing it,cut the nut with your cut off wheel.
I just replaced 2 front stabilizer links and it was easy. You have to jack up both wheels make sure you take off both front tires makes it easier too work on take the top nut off on link by stabilizer bar first if you break it off dont worry its ok then take off bottom nut from the frame where the link goes thru put in new link tighten bottom nut first then tighten top nut dont over tighten top nut to much just enough that the threaded shaft is about a 1 1/4 inches above the nut do the same on the other side.
jack the truck up so tire are off the ground then get and 3 or 4 foot pry bar or strong pipe and put under tire lift up on bar if the tire moves up and down replace balljoints of not check for bad bushings on your shocks sway bars sway bar end links upper and lower control arm if equip.
How about the shocks and possible hugh air pressure in tires? When you push down on front end the body should return without bouncing. Hard tire won't absorb road shock. Give those two a look at.. good luck
