shocks are easy my friend. make sure you have shocks in the front not struts. a strut will have a spring around the shock with a large steel plate holding the spring to the strut. first off. the car does not have to be lifted to change the rear and if you have shocks on the front as well. just simply remove the lower and upper mounting hardware then change. i can not say enough make sure you have shocks in the front and not struts. struts are a pain and can be very dangerous to replace if you dont have the correct equipment
You'll need to unbolt the top of the strut and the bottom of the strut at the steering knuckle. You'll need a spring compressor to compress the spring before seperating the strut from the strut mount and spring. You may want to replace the strut mount also. MAKE SURE THE SPRING IS COMPRESSED ENOUGH BEFORE REMOVING THE TOP STRUT MOUNT!!!!
Struts have big springs around them and they need to be compressed to change the strut. These compressed spring store a large amount of energy and can be very dangerous when handled improperly. This requires special tools and skills. Also after changing struts a wheel alignment is necessary. Unless you are a very experienced do it yourselfer changing struts is probably not something you should try. Take it to a shop.
changing tires will help some but if your tread isnt worn enough to justify the cost wouldnt be worth it. depending on your mileage it may be time for shocks/struts. 50,000 is a good time to start checking into shocks.
you can test shocks by doing the following:
the easiest test i know is to push down on front (or rear) of the car, keep pushing until you get it bouncing then let go. if the car has good shocks it will bounce only once after you let go. look under the car at the shocks, if there is oil leaking from the shocks, they are bad.
