No, it's a fairly easy do it yourself job. And yes, your shock is shot. If
you don't replace it now, your tire will wear out pretty quickly.
Something to keep in mind...sometimes the larger chains offer "free
installation" of shocks. I had Sears install mine last spring while I
shopped at the Mall.
