Advice on Shock Replacement

What exactly is involved in replacing front shocks on a W123 240D? I have decided on the Bilstein Comfort shocks, as I've heard many good things about them. As far as I can tell, this would be the procedure:

- Remove the bolts on top of the shocks
- Jack up the car, remove wheels
- Remove the 2 12 point 10mm bolts at the bottom of the shock
- Remove shock, install new one in reverse order.

Is there anything I'm missing here? This seems a little too easy. Are there going to be issues with disturbing the alignment of the car, etc? Any caveats?

1982 240D - 350k miles and still going strong...
