STRUT ASSEMBLY

Removal & Disassembly
Raise and support vehicle. Remove rear wheel assembly. Remove lower strut mount bolts. Remove upper strut-to-body mount nuts. Remove strut assembly.
Clamp strut securely in soft-jaw vise. Using spring compressor, compress coil spring. Remove upper strut shaft nut. Remove remaining components, noting order for reassembly reference.
