Re: RX4 rear coil spring replacement

Job still not done arrgghh! any one assist please? think its a case of can't get the sproing compressors on properly with the spring broken, ie bottom 2 rings or so snapped so majority of coil twisted at an angle, but the swinging arm only seems to drop so far like its being held back?? have the strut/shock bolt out, but surely this should have freed from the swinging arm? but as i raise the swinging arm and lower it, the shock moves up and down too?

maybe its at full stretch (the shock)? do i need to prise it away from the swinging arm?

checked the top of the shock (o/s rear) and what a bstd! soz the nut is virtually inaccessible? help appreciated?
