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)
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.
2002 Honda Civic front end ball joint and LCA bushings replacement
I hope this video assists you when performing this repair. I apologize for
the length, but I included all the "warts" that come when undertaking this
task. I would recommend that you simply cut through the front bushing bolt
instead of trying to unbolt the bushing from the subframe. Pick up a new
bolt for each front bushing from Honda (about $6 each) and you'll save
yourself ALOT of the headaches that helped make this video so long. If you
don't have the tools needed to press the bushings, you can take the LCA and
bushing to a local shop and they can press them in and out for (I've heard)
about $40 per side. Remember to pump the brakes with the engine running
until the pedal feels firm before putting the car in gear after repair that
requires removing the brake caliper from any vehicle. Comments not
including "This video is too long!" are appreciated. Best of luck.
No spring compressor needed
This is how I do it to disassemble a MacPherson strut assembly without
using spring compressors. Compressors are for fools! :)
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.
