Hi, if you still need help then you just jack up the vehicle under the body and remove the wheel. The shock strut has two bolts at the bottom and three nuts on top. Remove the clip on the brake line first and then the lower bolts. Remove the top nuts but hold on to the shock to prevent it falling. Install the new shock through the top and put the nuts on hand tight. Install the lower shock bolts and tighten the top nuts to 15 ft/lbs and bottom bolts to 58 ft/lbs. Reattach brake line. Install wheel and tighten, lower the vehicle. ------
