Hey, front shocks are easy. Unbolt the stabilizer link where it attaches to the shock and push it to the right. Then unbolt the two larger bolts at the bottom of the shock where they connect to the steering knuckle. You'll need a socket and wrench because once it's loose it will spin. Btw these two are hard to break free if you have never touched them before. Last step is to unbolt the three nuts at the top of the Shock inside the engine bay. The. The shock will drop out and you're done!!! Install in reverse

Almost the same for the rears except you have to take the back seat out. I would suggest buying a chiltons or haynes manual as it will have detailed instructions for most of the more basic stuff like this, and they're only like $20-30. Also there are probably some tutorials in the DIY section, hope this helps :)


Edit: You will have to take a piece of strong wire and attach it to the top area and then attach it to your break caliper so caliper can hang. The wire should be short enough to let the caliper without screwing up either your break line or ABS sensor line. This is VERY important. Just wrap the wire through the strut hole and a bolt hole and then around your caliper. Good luck!

Disconnect your ABS line is a Must.

Seems easy... my main thing is the rear hubs. I bought the complete assembly off ebay with the studs and all just have no clue on how to replace that =\

Hubs are super easy on the rear. Once the brake disc is off, you'll see access holes that allow you to get to four 14mm bolts holding the hub on. Spin the the hub so the holes line up with the bolts and use a socket to remove the 4 bolts. Then it just pulls out, maybe with some persuasion.
