90 Tempo rear shocks

How difficult is it to replace the rear shocks. Not sure if they are struts or shocks and would I need to compress the coil springs to replace the shocks. Looking to not spend much money on this repair.

Re: 90 Tempo rear shocks

I did both back struts in about 2 and a half hours... you will need a coli compressor tho, so barrow one if u dont have one because they are pretty expensive. Its not that difficult... its just getting the top bolts to line up in the holes inside the trunk that will kill yah, get a friend to help you line them up putting the new ones is or u will pull your hair out trying by ur self.
