Continued........ Rear Suspension Change

(10). Now is a good time to compare the old and the new to make sure everything will fit.

(11).  Use the spring compressor to hold the spring in place while the shock perch nut is removed.  If you have a impact gun it is not necessary to hold the shock shaft stationary.  But if you are using a wrench you will need a vise grip to hold the shaft in place for the Koni shocks

(12). Transfer the sway bar link from the factory shock to the new shock.  You will need to use a torx in order to hold the shaft in place while the nut is being loosen.

(13). Same method on how to loosen the shock perch nut can be used when tighten the nut on the new shock.

(14). Now it would probably be a good time for you to ask for an extra pair of hands to help you.  Unfortunately my wife will never help me do anything that is car related.  So I had to do this by myself.  It was very difficult!  Insert the new shock assembly through the rear shock tower and have someone to help you hold it while you hand tighten the 4 x 13 mm nut from the top of the rear shock tower. 

(15). Insert the lower suspension arm back in the shock mounting hole and the hub assemble. You will need someone to put some weight on the hub assembly to push it down in order for the holes to line up for you to insert the suspension arm shaft.  You will also need a torx to hold the shaft in place while you tighten the nut with a wretch.  And reinstall the arm at the sub frame end.  The bolt that holds the arm at the sub frame end in is also used as the toe in and out adjustment on the car, get it back to the original position as much as possible.  Tighten the 4 x 13 mm shock tower nut.

(16). Complete.  Need to do the other side and then reinstall the sway bar.

RBPComments: Why does the "Click here to continue" not work. I would like the rest of the DIY.
