U Joints and Shocks.. Help Needed

Anyone in or around Richmond that could help replace U Joints and Shocks on my 2006 Rubicon? Unfortunately, I don't know how to do it but I'd love to learn. The dealer wants around 1200 to replace everything which I can't afford to do right now. HELP??

Haven't climbed under a jeep in a while, shocks are easy peasy, u-joints can be fun, but might still be able to help, when are you looking to do it? I might be available next weekend

i'm ordering the shocks sometime this week and im on call the next two weekends for work. I'll check my calendar and see when I'd be able to do it. The only thing is. I don't have tools or anything and I've never done it...

I'm not a fan of autozone, if you order ujoints online but at advance and get moogs, excellent brand, and if you enter p20 at your shopping cart you can get 20% off or enter big30 if you spend more than $75, that gets you $30 off
