Replace washing machine 'tub suspension'


Our Maytag washing machine is about 7 years old. It is in need of 4 new suspension spring/rod assemblies. (The things that control the up/down motion of the tub).
Looks like the parts will run me about $25.
On a scale of 1-5 how hard is it to replace them AND would I need more than a couple screw drivers ? Anything to look out for ?

Thanks (Happy Holidays !)

Google this and many videos are out there to show how it is done. Not hard but I have a very stiff hook I used to hold up rods.
