Default worn struts

Where can one find shock absorbers for old school subies? The passenger rear shock in my 89 gl wagon seams to be sagging a bit...how hard are they to replace?

The shocks/struts won;t make it sag.. the spring will. The shocks/struts can be had anywhere from sears to autozone.

Springs on the other hand.. try a wrecking yard

Only 3 bolts to remove the rear shocks.. real easy..However, it requires a spring compressor to remove the spring from the strut. Still not terribly hard. I can do both rears in under an hour
