Before you do anything...do you have spring compressors?

After compressing the spring on the strut you'll need to take the nut off the top with an impact wrench. Save it. you'll need it to go back on.

The rubber bumpstop is under the black plastic dust cover on the shaft of the strut...it keeps the shock from fully bottoming out and destroying the internal parts.

if you lived a little more south, i would go help you out... I live in ft. lauderdale... its an easy install though. Make sure you have spring compressors! I don't know if you can, but I rented them from Advanced auto parts for $50, and when you bring them back, you get a full refund.
