2. SEPARATE FRONT STABILIZER LINK ASSEMBLY

(a) Remove the nut to separate the front stabilizer link assembly from the front shock absorber with coil spring.

HINT:

If the ball joint turns together with the nut, use a 6 mm hexagon socket wrench to hold the stud bolt.

3. SEPARATE FRONT SPEED SENSOR

(a) Remove the bolt, disengage the clamp and separate the front speed sensor and front flexible hose from the front shock absorber assembly.

NOTICE:

Be sure to separate the front speed sensor and front flexible hose from the front shock absorber assembly completely.

4. REMOVE FRONT SUSPENSION SUPPORT DUST COVER

(a) Remove the front suspension support dust cover from the front shock absorber with coil spring.

5. REMOVE FRONT SHOCK ABSORBER WITH COIL SPRING

(a) Support the front lower No. 1 suspension arm sub-assembly using a jack and wooden block.

NOTICE:

Keep the front lower No. 1 suspension arm sub-assembly supported until installation of the front shock absorber with coil spring is complete.

(b) Remove the 2 bolts and 2 nuts, to separate the front shock absorber with coil spring from the steering knuckle.

NOTICE:

  • When removing the nuts, keep the bolts from rotating.
  • Use wire or an equivalent tool to hang the separated steering knuckle.

(c) Using SST, fix the front shock absorber rod and remove the nut.

SST: 09729-00170

SST: 09729-38060

(d) Remove the front No. 2 suspension support.

(e) Remove the front shock absorber with coil spring from the vehicle body.

6. REMOVE FRONT SUPPORT TO FRONT SHOCK ABSORBER NUT

(a) Secure SST in a vise.

SST: 09727-30022

09727-00010

09727-00022

09727-00031

(b) Attach the hooks of each SST arm across the diameter of the front coil spring.

CAUTION:

  • Do not perform the work without checking to make sure that the claws of the hooks are securely engaged.

    *a

    Front Coil Spring Diameter

  • It could cause the hook to slip off and the spring to fly out, which could result in an injury.
  • Do not install SST to the front coil spring unless its top and bottom hook distance is set to the widest condition.
  • It could cause the hook to slip off and the spring to fly out, which could result in an injury.
  • Do not install SST when the distances between the SST arms or the number of coils of the coil spring between the hooks are not the same.
  • It could cause the hook to slip off and the spring to fly out, which could result in an injury.

(c) Install the stopper pins to the hooks of SST.

CAUTION:

  • Do not perform the work if the stopper pin is not securely installed.
  • It could cause the hook to slip off and the spring to fly out, which could result in an injury.

(d) Using SST, compress the front coil spring.

CAUTION:

  • While compressing the spring, if the front coil spring starts to bend into a bow shape, do not continue the work.
  • It could cause the hook to slip off and the spring to fly out, which could result in an injury.
  • Do not compress the springs so far that the coils of the springs touch each other.
  • It could cause the hook to slip off and the spring to fly out, which could result in an injury.
  • Do not use an impact wrench.
  • The threads may be stripped, or the sudden compression may result in slack that causes the hooks to slip off, causing the spring to fly out and possibly resulting in injury.
  • If a stopper pin touches the coil spring while using SST, remove the stopper pin and continue with the procedure.
  • If a stopper pin is removed, install a coil spring stopper belt as shown in the illustration.
  • If a hook disengages from the coil spring, the coil spring may fly out, resulting in injury.

SST: 09727-00110

(e) Check that the front coil spring has become free, and using SST and a 6 mm hexagon socket wrench, remove the front support to front shock absorber nut.

SST: 09729-97202

CAUTION:

  • If the front coil spring has not become free, do not remove the front support to front shock absorber nut.
  • The spring force will cause the components to be scattered, possibly resulting in injury.
