The actual job is very straight forward. The only reason it wasn't very easy was that I needed a buddy to help compress the new shocks as there was no way I was doing it from underneath the coach. Once he compressed the shocks, I quickly lined it up and inserted the bolts. It took me a couple of tries and there is probably a better way, but it wasn't bad.
Also, when I pulled the old shocks off, I was shocked at how easy they were to compress. My rig only has 8000 miles now and I can't imagine those shocks did much of anything.
Sway bar is also straight forward (I removed the spare for more space during install). Again, having a helper made it much easier.
It's been years since I've really worked on cars so I'm not the kind of guy that is gonna tackle complicated stuff and I felt completely comfortable doing this work.
