i have a question.., are these easy to change urself?
There is a major hurdle. It's almost impossible to unscrew the ball bolts that connect the shocks to the hatch with an open wrench.

The easiest way is to saw them with a hacksaw. Then you'll be able to use a socket wrench to unscrew them.

i suggest u get an impact wrench
It won't help at all.

The ball bolt is made of soft steel. You need to unsrew it somehow. If it's inside the shock end, the only possibility is to use an open wrench, which will round the bolthead.
