Update to previous post. I got it done with help from friends. It was not obvious and it took several attempts. Make sure to have the right axle nut sockets (female). Have a good tool for spreading the shock holder. I don't necessarily suggest going out to buy the spreader tool, but be prepared with an alternative. Also, if using a compression tool with the intention of not removing the axle, make sure it fits enough to compress, otherwise you will have to remove the axle in order to remove the shock and you should be prepared for that. All in all, this was not an easy procedure in the least and I don't reccommend anybody without a significant amount of knowledge, Tools and the ability to let the car sit on stands till you get back to it to try doing this job without a mechaninc'
s help. I had a friend whom is a BMW alignment specialist do the job with me and he was perplexed at times. If you can get the job done for less than $500 CAD, I would say it is not worth doing on your own unless you just really want to learn and you don't mind maybe re-doing the job because you missed something.
