Shock change?

Howdy, just bought shocks (e-bay) from a supposedly 2001 as I have one that has bad seals.

Was wondering what's involved in changing? Just center-stand and remove bolts? Seems straight forward enough.

Am I missing something?

Thanks...

Do one at a time or the tire will drop. That is how you do a Spline check and a tire removal.
