REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
The shock absorber is the lower stop for the suspension.
Leaving the car on the ground or raising the car and securely supporting the A-arm, remove the lower shock absorber through-bolt. To gain access to the upper shock mount, remove the access panel for each shock located at the sides of the rear luggage shelf. Remove the self-locking nut from the shock absorber shaft and remove the shock. Installation is the reverse of removal.
