I hope you do get lucky and all goes well. You could jack the car up, remove a wheel and try loosening the strut bolts - that will give you an indication of how the job will go.
You will also need to replace the upper strut mounts. I would guess on your year the Monroe will be a different design strut from the OEM like mine was, because of this the upper mount would no longer have the impact disributed over the whole vulcanised mount. Besides, they're not that expensive and even if the originals fit, the new ones will improve your ride.
Wonder how long before you do the fronts :P
