Question replacing shocks

I'd like to replace the OEM rear shocks on my 2001 F250 4x4.
I ordered new Bilsteins. Now the questions.....

1. Is this something I want to do myself?
2. Do I need to jack up the truck and remove the rear tires??
(I do have access under the truck due to the height of the truck)
3. Any special tools needs to do this??

I've talked to people who say it's easy and others who say it is not- ANy advice?? I'd like to save a few bucks if possible

It varies from car to car. It all depends how much access you have and how rusted they are. It can be done on the ground if you have room to work.

sounds easy

Sounds like a easy job on a 4x4 pick up plenty of room I used to do it on my pick up did not even need jack or stands.Just keep the strap that keeps the shocks compressed uncut till the last step.
