Re: Lowering an IRS equipped AU
Okay, I know for certain that you'll need a spring compressor for the rear, but you won't have any trouble removing the spring/shock from the rear. Front might be a bit more difficult to remove/replace though. Also, AU IRS rear are prone to have a knocking noise, so you may need an extra washer to space out between the top of the strut and the rubber seat for the spring. Appranatly when the shock is fully released, theres a tiny bit of free play before the shock actually starts to depress, causing a "knocking" noise. All things to note. Sorry I don't want to scare you!
