My car is getting rough riding. Im getting ready to replace the shocks, and struts for a smoother ride. Few questions for you guys?

1. Should i replace both front and and back?

2. Is this a project i can do myself?
2a. What other parts would i need other than the shocks, struts?
2b. Any fluids involved?

3. Anyone know where i can get a set cheap? I saw online a set of KYB Gr-2 for $200 that includes front and back.(keep in mind i dont care about High Performance anymore, just enough to keep her going.)

I would relace them all myself. Especially if you're going with something other than stock.
To change the struts you'll need a spring compressor and about 2 or 3 different sockets and a screw driver
(have to remove the rear speaker covers to gain access to the strut tops.) You should check your strut hats before beginning your project.
Only fluid you might need is wd 40.
Good luck on your project!:)

You can find one at a local autoparts store. It sounds more intimidating than it is. probably around $20. Or They might rent it to you.
