In Part-2 of this two part series, we will replace the rear shock and
spring. See Part- for the front shock/spring/strut replacement.
The Bentley repair manuals will cover standard shock and spring replacement
for the various BMW and MINI models. This DIY will assume that the DIYer
has the applicable Bentley manual for additional reference as well as
fastener torque values. Note that we will be installing the Bilstein
PSS-10 coil-over kit. However, the procedures would be the same for any
common shock/strut replacement (including installing sport springs, if
• New shocks/struts (Bilstein, Koni, Sachs, etc.)
• New sport or stock replacement springs, if desired (BMW, BavAuto,
• New Shock install kits (compression bumpers, dust shields, spring pads,
• New upper strut and shock mounts
• New strut & shock mount gaskets (as required)
• Rear shock mount reinforcing plates
• Bentley Repair Manual
• BavAuto Non-Marring pry bar set
• 13mm through 18mm ½"drive socket & ratchet set with various extensions
• 4mm through 8mm Allen keys or bits (for ratchet use)
• 13mm through 18mm combination wrench set
• Assorted flat and Phillips screwdrivers
REAR (applies directly to the E46 3-series, but the E36 3-series uses the
same steps and procedures):
1) Safely raise the rear of car, with suspension hanging.
2) Remove the wheels.
3) Place a jack under the lower shock mount eye or the wheel hub assembly.
Slightly raise the suspension (just enough to remove the downward tension
on the shock).
4) Remove the lower shock mount bolt.
5) Lower the jack and allow the suspension to hang free.
6) Remove the trunk side trim panel to access the upper shock mount.
7) Remove the two 13mm nuts from the upper shock mount, at the top of the
8) Lower the shock out of the vehicle.
9) Assemble the new shock with new compression bumper, dust tube and upper
mount. Be sure to re-use the large lower and upper washers for the upper
mount. These washers must cup away from the mount. lower washer cups
downward and upper washer cups upward.
10) If the spring is being replaced, it can be removed BEFORE
re-installing the shock. Have a helper pull downward on the wheel hub
assembly and pull the spring out from between the chassis and the upper
11) Using new upper and lower spring pads, install the new spring in the
same manner as the original was removed. Install the new spring pads, then
install the spring.
12) Install the new shock. Place a new shock mount gasket on the shock
mount and insert the assembly up into the shock tower. If installing a
shock mount reinforcement plate, place the plate over the two shock mount
studs, on top of the shock tower, before installing the two nuts. Install
the two nuts. Install the trunk trim panel.
13) Install the lower shock mount bolt. Be sure to install the washer on
the bolt before installing the bolt. Use the jack to raise the suspension
assembly to align the lower shock mount with the hub mounting point, so the
bolt can be inserted and threaded. Tighten the bolt.
14) Repeat for the other side.

Focus ST Eibach Sportline Coil Springs Installation 2013
Eibach's Sportline Coil Spring Set will equip your 2013 Focus ST with race
car like handling for maximum street performance. With Sportline Coil
Springs, you will achieve the lowest possible drop, yet maintaining the
exceptional ride quality you expect from Eibach. You will be able to stop
quicker, corner faster, gain
better MPG, and dramatically reduce squat during acceleration.
For installation, you'll first access and loosen the strut tower. Then,
remove the wheel and disconnect and remove the strut, following Bill's
instructions in the install video. After this, you'll disassemble the
strut, removing the original spring and spring dust boots. Then, install
the new Eibach spring and dust boot on the spring, along with the bump
stops included in the set.
Return the strut to your Focus and reinstall all bolts and brackets,
reconnect the sway bar and ABS sensor, and then repeat this process on the
other side. Resecure your wheels and reassemble your strut tower and cowl.
Next, you'll work on your rear springs, which are a lot less involved.
Remove the bolt pointed out by Bill, which holds the perch in place,
allowing you to access the rear spring. Remove the spring and bump stop,
and then secure the new bump stop and new Eibach spring (While we have had
no problem with the numb stop mounted as shown, Eibach recommends
installing the numb stop on the shock). Next, return the perch and bolt and
then complete this process on the other side. Total installation takes
around three hours.
