Default Help on a rront strut/shock replacement on a 2002 Toyota Tacoma?

Hey so i have a 2002 crew cab tacoma (not 4x4 unfortunately) with a block lift kit and some 33in tires on it, and the hydraulic fluid has leaked out? time to replace them. I talked to the guy at the 4X4 shop i bought the rancho shocks at, and he kept stressing it can be very dangerous installing and he would do it for 160$?. The reason its more dangerous than normal is because i want to reuse the coil overs that are already on the truck so i would have to use a compressor or something rented from an auto parts store. Does anyone know of a youtube video or website that could provide me with safe directions or is it worth getting it done professionally? Any other input on the subject would be appreciated















Thanks for your time!

from what i read in the book, in oem config, coil removal is not needed to change shocks.































but iffin those have already been changed b4, i think between the youtube link "deboerdn2000" (thumbs) supplied and the manual, you should have no issues.
