RE: need procedure for rear shocks

If you are doing it with help, one of you can press down and the other locks
the nut. If you are doing it alone and want to use a spring compressor, get
one at a harbor Freight tool shop or Jcwhitney, it is cheap ($11-15).
If you are doing "lowered springs" it is easier, if you are doing OEM
springs you might have to use a spring compressor.

I recall hearing it's necessary to use a spring compressor when changing
out the rear shocks. But a friend tells me he can do this without a
compressor. Did I hear right? Anyway, I don't seem to have a procedure for
rear shocks in my archive. Does anyone have one that they can send? For a
'91 200q.
