ED EF Civic Shock Absorber / Spring Replacement
Replacing my Civic's shocks & springs. Yes, I know this isn't the hardest
task, I made it to play around with my new Canon hf10 camcorder & macbook.
Might help people get an idea of what is involved in such a task before
attempting it themselves. There aren't enough videos like this on youtube.
Disclaimer: I am obviously not a mechanic, I take no responsibility for any
injuries caused by attempting to replace shock absorbers or drinking beer.
Struts can sometimes be a little scary. That is unless you have the right
equipment. They are really pretty simple for the most part. However be
sure to use a spring compressor. Here is an example on a Honda. Other
vehicles will be basically the same

After posting the last video on replacing struts I thought I would post
this one next. I shot this along with the rest of the Accord front end
work that I did last fall. A couple of things are different, the most
obvious is that the springs are a much smaller diameter so you really need

the car care must be taken to get the notch on the strut lined up with the
wishbone, if you don't do this the upper wishbone bolt will not go in since
it has to fit in a groove on the back of the strut.
For the second time I've shown you that I tighten the lower wishbone bolt
with the car off of the ground, the fact is I shouldn't do this since I'm
told it may ruin the bushing that goes through the lower control arm. I
believe this to be possible but I have not experienced any problems doing
it this way. For me it just seems like a pain in the butt to try and reach
around the tire after I've put the wheel back on. But for those of you
that like to point out my faults here is my excuse for not doing it the

Coilover height adjustment Tutorial+Tips MAX suspension 240sx
In the process of installing the 6kg/mm springs in the rear of my s13 240sx
I decided to make a vid of some tips and tricks of measuring. The methods
for measuring your coils can also be used when setting ride height for the
first time and can help you keep each coil at identical height as the
adjacent one. (Unless your car is corner balanced, in which case each coil
would be adjusted differently to distribute the weight evenly)

How to compress a coil spring with ratchet straps
I was compressing this coil on a 2000 Ford Taurus that was realy hard and I
wanted to get it done tonight because I have so much work & more keeps
coming. anyhow my coil spring compressors that I have used so many times
had met their match and I was nervice that they were going to break so I
used dollar stoor ratchet straps and they worked great. I think if you used
just 4 ratchet straps it would do the job.
