lol i just asked this question not to long ago cuz i got a deal on it myself. Im about to do the swap myself when i get home (in nyc for a lil vacation be back by friday). Here are shiner's instructions.
12mm-12 point socket or wrench, 13mm wrench, 15mm socket, 18mm socket, impact wrench,(not needed, but handy) 18mm wrench, 15mm wrench, jackstands, and floor jack.
1. Jack up car, put on stands along the rails.
2. Remove tires, brake calipers and caliper brackets. No need to open the system. Just leave them dangling for now because you have to slide the rear end from side to side to get the lines out from over and under the axle tubes.
3. Remove driveshaft. 12mm-12point socket.
4. Brace rear end with floor jack, and remove lower shock bolts.
5. Remove upper control arm bolts from rear.
6. Remove lower control arm nuts from rear. The bolts will stay in for now because you have to raise and lower the jack to wiggle out the bolts.
7. Remove springs-gently.
8. Raise and lower rear end to get out lower bolts. It has to be angled just right in order for them to come out easily.
9. Slide out rear and install the same way in reverse.
Once you get the LCA bolts in on the new rear, install springs and raise jack to align with your UCA's. Remember to install brake lines around rear end before installing the LCA bolts!!!!!!! Been there, done that once, but there was alcohol involved.:headscratch:
Good luck. About a 2 hour job or so if you have done them alot......"
