I want to replace my rear springs pads to the 10mm ones to raise the back a little as I have the bilstein/HR sport combo (i.e.: back looks lower than front).<p>What is the easiest way to do this? I just replaced my bushings in my JTD RSM's so I know how much of a pain in the *** it is to remove all the stuff in the back. Can I just lift the car and remove the bottom bolt on the shock absorber to drop the trailing arm low enough to remove the rear spring?<p>Any advise would be greatly appreciated.<p>TIA<p>hk.

You can do just what you described. Removing the lower shock bolt will let you get the spring out and replace the spring pad.<p>Bob C.<p><i><br>I want to replace my rear springs pads to the 10mm ones to raise the back a little as I have the bilstein/HR sport combo (i.e.: back looks lower than front).<p>What is the easiest way to do this?
