If you replace them as a unit, springs and all, it'* not that hard. Unbolt the top, unbolt the bottom, and out they come. The front that is.

assuming its the same as my bonnie the elc (air ride) is even easier the rears are like shocks with air tubes. take top bolts and bottom bolts out of the spindle. had to heat the rear spindle up with a acetylene torch to get them out
