Well for starters you need a few hundred dollars worth of tools; body clamps, nitrogen charge kit, pick sets, a good vise and nitrogen. Then theres the shock oil and seals. So if you don't rebuild shocks 10 times a year its not worth it to even try and do them your self. Look up the tools and rebuild kits on here www.carverperformance.com
You can do it your self and have a dealer charge them for you. a seal kit will run you 10 bucks a shock and oil 10 bucks a qt. or more ( 1 qt will easily do 4 standard shocks) and large wrench or cresent adjustable wrence and a vise. but you will need to de pressurize they system which will require a tool or just simply us a siringe. and you can get the pistion depth measurements from carver but you willwant a good ruler or caliper to set them. It is not hard but can be messy and time consuming. where you willstill have to go to a dealer to charge them which can run 5-10 bucks a shock buy the time your done it is easier to just pay the 35 bucks to a dealer a shock vs saving the 10 bucks of doing it yourself.
