Front shock reassemble

  1. Mart609
    Here's a run down
    Get the wheel off.

    Undo the 2x 12mm that hold the brake lines on

    The front's are not one complete unit like the rear so you have to seperate the shock from the fork bottom
    so Undo the 14mm pictured here at the top of the fork

    IMG_1166.

    Then undo the 17mm and slide the bolt out that hold the fork to the hub.

    Then slide the fork off the bottom of the shock (might take a bit of persuading with a hammer.

    Then next unto the 3 - 14mm holding the topmount to the body

    IMG_1172.

    Then the whole shock should drop out.

    What you will need is a set of spring compressors as the standard springs will have quite alot of tension and if you just undo the nut they will launch the shock off and you could loose a eye, finger, worse etc. :Laughing:

    So compress the springs to remove the tension so you can remove this top 14mm nut safely

    once the top mounts off remove the dust cover and remove these washers

    re-fit to the new coilover shock

    Then refit the topmount with the washer and 14mm

    IMG_1160.

    Then lastly tap the brackets that hold the brake lines with a hammer to loosen them off and re-fit to the new shock

    IMG_1161.

    Re-fit the car reversing the previous steps :Thumbup:

    Hope thats ok for you?
