93 Taurus Wagon - Strut Replacement?

Is replacing the front strus a DIY job?
If so, how hard?
If not what is the typical cost?
Tnks, Bill

A well equipped DYI can do it. But you will have to get a alignment
when your done. You will need a spring/strut compressor. Then
you have to knock the lower control arm off the strut . If the struts
have never been removed, this can be fun. If the springs are not up to
snuff, you can buy combo replacement spring/strut units now.
Just bolt them in. You might as well drill out the strut tower mounts
while your at it.

So the alignment shop don't charge you to do it when they tell
you they can not do the front end alignment without drilling the spot
welds out on the strut tower tops.
