Dang Bro, Didnt Even Know There Was A Bolt In Side The Trunk.lol.
Where In The Trunk Is It?
Dont i have to put the jack under the where the bottom connects, that way it dosent drop the whole side down?
What I did - was back the car up on ramps.
Crawl into trunk, remove upper nut (took two wrenches, the shaft kept spinning. Luckily there's a hex on the shaft end, plus I had a ratcheting box wrench for the nut - a 19mm IIRC. Check on that, though.)
Crawl under car (while on ramps), unbolt bottom.
I was able to reach around the tire (jacked the car up about 2 inches to fit my fat arms!) to fit the new upper bushing into place (old one fell out, it was in such bad shape.)
I then crawled back under the car, stabbed the shock up into the bushing, and put the lower bolt back in place (while pushing the shock up). I could then wait until I drove off the ramps to put the top nuts back on.
For the front - are you using Monroe EZ-Struts or the Raybestos or KYB equivelent, with the springs attached? If so the front is fairly easy, and given some care, you won't even have to realign the car.
Given the EZ-Strut set, the front is like this:
Jack car up, put on jack stands.
Remove front wheels.
Loosen bolt through lower shock / LCA, but do not remove at this time.
Remove three nuts that hold assembly to top of shock tower.
Remove lower bolt, remove assembly.
Slip new assembly up into shock tower, start nuts on bolts at top, but do not tighten yet.
Align LCA with lower shock mount, insert bolt, run nut down but DO NOT TIGHTEN! Bolt should be loose enough to slip back and forth.
Tighten top nuts to the proper torque settings.
Put the wheels back on, take the car off the jack stands.
Jounce the front end up and down a few times to let the lower shock bushing settle.
Drive it up on the ramps, torque down the lower shock mounting bolt.
If, however, you're not using EZ-Struts or some equivelent thereof - in between the "Remove old, install new", you get the joy of taking the old one apart and putting the new one together. I HIGHLY recommend finding a good frame shop that will use their wall mounted spring compressor and do it for you - the local shops charge about $20/assembly, and that $40 won't really buy a good spring compressor ...
