Installing front shocks

I was going to have Koni's put on the front of my rig while I was in Las Vegas,but the shocks didn't come in till the day we were s'posed to leave. I have carried them all the way home and now I'm trying to decide whether to do them myself or to just run them to the RV shop and have them do them.
I haven't changed any shocks myself since I had my '70 FJ55 Landcruiser and a '76 chev 3/4 ton p/u so I am a bit out of practise.
I'll be doing it out and under if I do it myself.

IFS or beam axle?

Shouldn't be too hard for either one. When working with ReycoGranning to sort out my front axle ride problems I changed shocks 5 times on our IFS. Takes me about hr per side, should be easier/faster on a beam axle.

I just put Konis on the front of my LTC last week. The bottom bolt was a little too long to come out easily so I had to cut 1/4 inch off before putting it back. Other than that it was easy. Maybe an hour to do both sides, front only.
