Re: need help to fit my superlows in my EA sedan:P

The middle nut on the shock tower (DON'T touch the other three unless you want some seriously retarded camber/castor), the upper ball joint has to be popped out and the lower nut on the stock. IIRC you need 24mm and 22mm ring spanners for the shock bolt and 15mm ring spanner/socket for the nuts on the ball joint and shock tower.

You'll also need spring compressors to get the standard springs out, superlows will go in without being compressed though.

Re: need help to fit my superlows in my EA sedan:P

I was told you'll **** the cambar/castor right up when you put it back on. This by an engineer who knows a shit load and if he told me not to I ain't touching it.

Rears are heaps easier. You wont need spring compressors at all. Put the car up on stands, jack the diff up, undo the shocks at the top and bottom, lower the diff and take the springs/shocks out.

The top 3 bolts have nothing to do with camber/castor though.

All those bolts do is stop the shockand spring falling out of the car during airborne manovours... Trust me they do their job
