First, remove the wheels!
Remove the bolt on the rear torsion bar holding the strut in place. Have something ready to hold the torsion bar from dropping. Then, pop the new springs in place and blot it back together. The rear springs on this car are very easy!
The bolts are not eccentric, but it is nice to mark them for final assembly.
Now, remove the end link bolt, strut dampener bolt, wheel speed sensor wire, brake line bolt, and finally, the strut bolts in the hub.
This is what the clip for the wheel speed sensor looks like. Be careful not to break it!
Now, remove the 3 nuts on the top of the strut tower to remove the strut.
I like to mark the struts along with top hat orientation.
Use a spring compressor to compress the springs and remove the top hat. You will need a pass-through driver and a hex wrench:
Now place the new spring back on and re-assemble! Here's a side by side of the old spring with the new spring:
Now you can place the new strut/spring combo back in the factory location and re-attach everything. The endlink will require a pass-through driver/wrench and a hex wrench.
