Look for Chrysler Emblems on the old shocks. If they are there, the shock are
probably factory (I can't imagine anyone replacing shock with dealer parts?!).
As far as a do-it yourself project. Go for it!. There are no issues with
alignment or otherwise. It is an hour job (for me) with no real 'Gotchas'.
Just follow the instructions that come with the new shocks (and the FSM if you
have it). You will need to jack up the front to get the shock out, and the
new ones in.

Good Luck
