Easy job dude...even for a numpty like me ;)

Jack up the car and place front beam on axle stands...
whip the old ones off (top and bottom nuts)
slap the new ones in..
...job done :D

If theres anything in particular you get stuck with just shout up, though i cant think of anything as its very straight forward...give it a go !
Good Luck

The only thing that may be tricky is if the top tube spins with the nut. There is a square end to the top mount, but some numpt may have been a bit aggressive with the mole-grips in the past. If you can't get a spanner on the square end, try wedging the shock tube against the shock tower to stop it turning.

Should be a 10min job each side.
