Hello,

The struts on the front and the shocks on the rear can be changed out within few hours depending on your comfort level.
You will have to raise the vehicle and support it with jack stands to get started.

Here are couple of helpful articles:

I have attached the replacement procedure for both the front struts and rear shocks.

Please let me know of any questions.
Thank you.
