Rear Upper Bushing--Help!
Finally got around to replace the rear shocks! What a learning experience...
After the trials, tribulations, and a lot of tears, I finished. Only to find I can't put a new top shock insulator+nut on! The rubber part was too thick for the bolt to reach the shock.
The part number for the insulator I got was AR3Z-18197-A. Comparing to the stock it was much thicker, but maybe that's because the old one's been squished down? I'm hoping I got the wrong part.
Anyway...any help would be appreciated!
(P.S. Anyone know of a tool that can hold the top of the rear shocks so it won't spin as I loosen the top bolt?)
Figured it out! The shock upper had a lip and it caught on the hole. Pushed the car around and it forced it in, leaving enough threading for the upper nut.
Tightening/loosening was greatly helped by a tool for that by Lisle.
