This is a dangerous job if you do not have the proper equipment for compressing the spring that is around the rear shock. I do not recomend performing this job without the proper equipment. Unloading the spring without it compressed can cuase injury.
If you have the proper equipment this is how you do it.
REMOVAL - SHOCK ASSEMBLY NOTE: Access for the nuts attaching the rear shock assembly upper mount to the vehicle is through the inside of the trunk.

You need a coil spring compresser, and the proper skill level to use it.
If you try to change the coils without a compresser, you CAN & WILL GET HURT. Coil springs are not something to fool about with if you do not have the proper tools. These things are danagerous.

Its NOT difficult but you would need a SPRING compressor. This tool can be rented from an AUTO ZONE when you return this tool you will get you money back. You just have to compress spring and remove shock absorber and replace in the opposite. Good luck and contact if you need more help. Thanks for using FIX YA

You will need a spring compressor which can be a loaner tool from most auto parts store but thats the only special tool needed . And yes it's quite easy
