I assumed the op cant do it himself or is afraid of a spring compressor. Typically you disassemble the "strut" and replace the shock then put it back together. Sometimes you also replace the top bearing plate, etc as other parts wear out.
Also I think the older versa had a complete suspension recall, so again figured op wanted to replace and start new.
I live in the building, so, tough to get enough working space when you park on the street
Also, I am not great with tools as well (big clumsy guy), i replaced spark plugs on my own, braking pads (on company parking lot, it the middle of nowhere), so getting a place to actually remove and re-pack shocks, plus leave the car like that to get anything I might be missing or should be replaced (bolt, plate, etc.)
I didn't ask for second opinion, it's 6 years old car with 50K miles on it, 80% of the time my baby is in car with me, so I don't mind replacing it if it's needed or recommended (even if it's not needed), just it's abysmal to pay 1100$ at the dealer, especially since on the price breakdown, they are claiming new ones are 600$... you can get performance one for that money...
