buy or rent a spring compressor from autozone. you would also need a
special socket setup to remove the shock cartridge from the shock
housing. Basically you would need two set of special tool before you
start. Also one more note: the 2 lower bolts on the shock be sure and
indentify the head of the bolt and put a wrench on it and be sure it
does not turn when you turn the nut off because the bolt is grooved.
Penetrating oil or wd-40 would help. spraying it the night before
works even better. Good luck! I am not an expert but I changed two
sets of front shocks on my caravans and its fairly straight forward,
except for the above mentioned items.
1. 2-bolts at the bottom
2. 3-bolts under the hood
3. remove brakeline clamped onto the shock tower
4. I am not sure if you need to remove the suspension link near the
5. the shock should drop
I hope I helped you!
