Looking for help with replacing my rear shocks. Big job? Special tools required, if any? Recommended options?
Nope, not really a big job at all. In fact, I did it in the dorm parking lot my freshman year because that was the only place I had. Only issue you could really run into is that the lower bolts supposedly have a tendency to shear/twist the heads off. In which case your stuck extracting the remainder of the bolt. I recommend soaking the bolts in pb blaster a day or two before doing the job, depending on the amount of corrosion.
the only pain is rusty bolts... soak em in PB blaster for a bit before the job, they should come out. I had to replace mine with new hardware due to destroying a few... but i also have a 99 that was originally from NJ so theres some rust.
