Default Need DIY Suggestions on Strut / Shock Replacement

Can anyone here give some key information on how to replace and change struts / shocks for Legend cars? How often should we replace shocks / struts. Want to know if it can be done with simple tools and just some effort from a home mechanic.::dunno:

Thanks!

Swapping out the shock assemblies is easy enough but separating shocks from springs is DANGEROUS, if you don't have GOOD equipment then don't do it but have a shop do it for you. The online manual is your friend for how to do things, here is the link to suspension: http://service.arnach.net/index.php?...634&z=665&r=-1
