This is what I used. A long metal pole in the lower arm to act as a lever, push down with your foot while you remove the shock with your arms. Did my first suspension swap alone in just a few hours 2000 miles from home with 3 sockets, 3 wrenches, a pair of jack stands, and the stock scissor jack using that guide. --> FCM on all 4 corners

Thanks , that bolt was it, I had no problem removing the shock assembly after removing it.

He did since I couldn't build him anything AC compatible he just wanted to get the best bottom mount he could.

The flange is different because he has a 1.8.


I'm hoping to have it ready to ship by friday! I have 2 days of autocross this weekend that I still haven't prepped my car for so hopefully I can stay on track and get all my goals met this week.

Ok so to add to the suspension drama, Im hearing a clanking noise with any input to the steering. I took the car out just when I had finished installing the coilover, when I saw everything looked good, I tossed it around a bit with no problem or noise. The following morning I drove the car to the train station and there were no problems also. In the afternoon when I got back I noticed that the steering was very shaky and will make a clanking noise with any input. Im either riding too low or I fucked something. Comments???

I see no shock travel here. Looks like you're right on the bumpstop.



I didn't get your manifold finished today :(
