jdoyle id say it rides pretty good. The front UCAs were changed as well so it makes a lot less noise. I need to change an idler pulley or something.


so far so good


this is my first time to ride in a car that I own with new suspension. and ive only driven it to work. there is a piece of road on the way home that will be a good test.

hmr1979 ......the $500 question,

How does it ride?

jdoyle so i just knocked out the kyb struts/shocks and moog strut/shock mounts on all four corners. i also bought moog bellows for all four corners. i would NOT recommend anyone buy the moog bellows (or i guess any bellows). just reuse your old ones. for the fronts, the moogs did not have the metal washer integrated into the bellow like the OEM bellow does. the rear moog bellows just didnt fit well.

i followed karaoke kop's recommendation for the torque spec on the rears, gudntite.

if anyone has any questions, post.

Does anyone have the torque specs for the rear shocks?
Torquing to spec is not a bad idea. But, I've never done it. Just cranked the bolts nice and tight without stripping. Never had one come loose or drop out.

Also, often (usually) need to cut off some of bumper to make it fit well.

Thank you

replace the strut bellow? if so, with what? KYB SB101, Moog K90460?
replace the coal spring insulator?
replace the strut mount? if so, with what? KYB SM5618, Moog K160225?


REAR:
replace the shock bellow? if so, with what? KYB SB114, Moog K90461?
replace the shock mount? if so, with what? KYB SM5617, Moog K160224?


Thank you

jdoyle I just bought the front and rear KYB GR2/Excel G struts and shocks.


I also bought the Moog strut bellow, strut mount, shock bellow and shock mount. If you are replacing the strut mounts, you don't need to buy the insulator as the mount comes with an insulator.


Also, the front torque specs (in lb-ft) are as follows:
The strut bayonet nut is 14.5-18.1
Strut mount nuts are 32.5-43.4
The bolt that fastens the strut to the fork gets 43.4-57.8
The nut that fastens the fork to the lower control arm gets 101.2-115.7


Does anyone have the rear torque specs?

I could really use some insight from those who have done this in the past. Thank you.
