Re: RX4 rear shock replacement

I followed Rex4's advice on this job and would like to thank him for the pointers. It worked a treat for me. I would add that, if turning the 'dreaded metal bush' with stilsons is difficult, put an extension tube on it for more leverage (scafold pole or similar?). The vehicle will have to be resonably high for this to get clearance. Also, it helps to hit the stilsons (away from the suspension arm) while turning it. Two people doing this (one turning, one hitting) will make it considerably easier.
Currently in cakejake's garage:
Just a Canadian canoe because an RX4 won't fit (unless it's in pieces)
