    They are not too hard to change if you have a spring compressor.

    You will have to change the pair mate, its good practice. First one will take you a bit of time then the second one you could do easily in 20 mins once you know the way round it. Spring compressors are a must for the front but not needed for the rear. There is a How 2 for it mate. Trust me, if you have the right tools its easy if you follow all the steps.
