Unhappy Help Blown Front Shock

Just went to the dealership to get the JEEP looked at. I went to get the vibration problem diagnosed, they found that the right front shock absorber is shot. They are asking $400+ for parts and install just one side.
I kinda suspected it because when I go through rough roads the steering wheel shakes badly. And when I hit a bump the right side seems to impact a lot harder that the left.
If I can install it myself I would.

My question is where can I buy a set of front shocks? How involve is it to install the shocks? Should I replace both sides?

Has anyone had this problem before? Any suggestions would be great. Thanks

Re: Help Blown Front Shock

It's pretty involved to change the front shocks, as they are coil overs. If you don't have a few jacks, the right tools, and some know how, you might have a fun time trying. Wish I was closer, I just dropped mine and I'm always happy to help. If you have any questions PM me and I'll try to help.

I guess I'll get a shop to install it for me.

Re: Help Blown Front Shock

Yeah that might be the best thing to do. You also have to get it aligned after you install the shock.
