I had already replaced the front ones, and they are a huge pain as well. There is very little space between the frame and truck body, especially on the driver's side, so it's very difficult to get a tool on the upper mounting nut. And when you do get a tool on there, you can only turn it about 1/16 turn at a time, so it's a very tedious job.

The performance with the new shocks is good. I first got a good alignment, installed big Hellwig swaybars, and a Saf-T-Plus steering controller. Those things made a big difference in driveability and stability on the highway, and in steering feel, and no more getting pushed across my lane when a semi passes. The new shocks got rid of wallowing on non-smooth roads and improved ride quality a bit. Not as big an improvement as the other mods, but still noticeable.
