Would anyone happen to have an installation guide for the shocks/springs in the rear, and the front strut assembled in the front? I plan on taking the springs, strut mount, and strut to my friend to assemble for me, but i plan on installing at home.
I just dropped my '09 yesterday and it's super simple if you pre-assemble your fronts struts/coils as a unit prior to installation IMO.
To get around having to remove the lower spring sleeves and the strut shaft boot/bump stop from your old strut assembly, I sourced these parts to help with the front units assembly.
Coil sleeve(goes on bottom of spring where it meets strut perch)
Ford part # 6R3Z-5L302-A(costs about $7-8 each at dealer)
Strut boot/bump stop(goes over strut shaft) Auto Zone Duralast part #143059($14.99 ea)
Doing this eliminates buying or renting a spring compressor(if you don't already have one)
and makes the job much safer overall as coil bind is a dangerous thing to deal with when you're working in a garage on jack stands.
I also suggest purchasing an adjustable rear panhard rod(cost is anywhere from $95 to $170, depending on maker), because the rear end will shift to driver's side after lowering.
Best of luck!
