I believe the spring is held in place with the same type of setup as valve springs. You will need to compress the spring and remove the 'keepers' then relax the spring.

How to change shock absorbers on a mg zt


Rear shocks would be in the boot or back seat - just unbolt and replace, you will have to remove both wheels. Front shocks may need a spring compressor if the shocks are inside the road spring, DO NOT ATTEMPT FRONT SHOCKS WITHOUT A SPRING COMPRESSOR YOU WILL GET SERIOUSLY HURT!!!

Of course this is only the cartridge, you have to transfer the spring, and the top mount of the existing strut. You need a pair of coil spring compressor to do the job. The basic procedure to replace a strut is:
Remove the top nuts that secure the strut assembly to the frame mount inside the engine compartment. Do not remove the center nut.
Mark the lower strut mounting location on the hub for installation reference. The alignment will be close if the new strut is installed in the same position.
Remove the bolts that hold the strut assembly to the hub.
Remove the strut assembly from the vehicle.
Mark the top mount for installation reference. Using a side mounted spring compressor, compress the spring and remove the top nut and retaining washer. Pull strut assembly out from the bottom of spring.
Slide the new strut assembly up into the spring and reposition the top mount onto the spring in the same position that it was removed. Install the retaining washer and top nut.
Tighten the top nut to the manufacturer's specifications and carefully remove the spring compressor.
Place the strut assembly back into the vehicle.

How do i replace the coil springs on a 2006 honda accord


Front are McPherson strut and you need highly specialised tools to change,plus they're under compression and if you are not experienced DON'T try to service them.Any brake-shock shop will change them out quickly and safely.The rear ones can be easily replaced with a floor jack and some common hand tools.Block the front tires(front and back of tire),jack car on the jack pad in front of the tire your going to change the spring.Remove the bottom shock bolt,this will allow the control arm to drop enough to pull out your old spring.Some times you need to unhook the sway bar to get added clearance.Replace the new spring making note of the original springs orientation.

No one makes air bags lifts for the Highlander 2wdr V6. How can you raise the rear to balance the load on the vehicle without changing the type of suspension. Which is a coil over-shock type? Bill Coker,...


Likely you can use monroe load leveler coil over shocks (check and see if they make them for yours) or you can replace stock rear springs with an aftermarket variable load spring.

Adjust spring preload


There are no preload, compression or rebound adjustments on either end of a 1996 Royal Star. The front fork characteristics can be changed by internal modifications to the front fork piston and a change in fork oil weight (stock is 5W), lengthening the spacers immediately beneath the cap bolt, or addition of progressive springs. The rear shock absorber assembly is a unit with no serviceable parts, no modifications are practical. The only aftermarket suspension parts I've found for the 1996-1998 Royal Stars are kits offered by Hyperpro (ECM), they list kits for the front forks SP-YA13-SSA05 and the rear SP-YA13-SSB05; however, since the rear kit is purported to fit all years from 1996 to the present, and the rear suspension was redesigned for the 2002 model year, I suspect that you may find that the rear kit doesn't work at all.

Changing rear shocks on a 1990 jag


No. But if can't get it on a lift or high enough to work under comfortably..it will be very awkward. The calipers get in the way when you are removing the springs and shocks as a unit. You can move the part and get it out and down, but you will need to remove the rear wheels and let the rear springs hang down.
Make sure you have a good spring compressor to get the old springs off....in most cases it is the springs that go soft and not the shocks...
Don't assume that it is the shocks unless you know for sure they are bad.
