if u want to do it yourself u need a 17mm spanner and maybe a small shifter to hold the top of the shock, 18mm spanner and a 18mm socket and ratchet, maybe a breaker bar to tighten. and a jack and axle stands. easy job.

Should see if anyone in the western suburbs wants to do it for you.

It really is a 20 min job, and you should be able to attract someone with a slab of beer or something.

Seriously, do it yourself. Besides saving money, you'll learn a lot about removing and replacing a wheel, jacking a car up safely, interior trim and other basic mechanical skills. Best of all, you did it yourself, a feeling that money can't buy. Sometimes in the Ipod generation, you just have to get your hands dirty.... :)
