    I just wanted to follow up with an answer to the question. I have included pictures you may share with others when they have the same problems I did. Using a small cut off wheel and an electrical dremal I made a cut across the upper cap just until I barely touched the ball underneath. Then using a screw driver I pried the cap apart and off of the factory ball. Then the new struts popped right on.

To remove the shock u raise the car and support semi-trailing arm. Disconnect shock upper and lower end but an remove the absorber. U install it in reverse but the final tightening of the nuts should be when the car on the ground and the tires touching the ground. For the spring u use a spring compressor and u just compress till it gets out. If u need more info and send me pictures

My rear wheels lean sag in at the top?

Your 300ZX needs two new rear coil springs... that prob has been around for years. Parts should be less than $100 on internet. Labor? Probably about the same as shock/strut replacement.
