Just did my wife's and it just about killed me ...laying on my back pushing straight up and trying to get the bolts through those three holes. Strut was very heavy.


I was thinking that maybe you could thread a bolt on to that top middle bolt and attach a chain or rope and have someone up top pulling up while I rotate strut below to align bolts with three holes.

Anyone ever try a trick like this?? or have your own trick?

I don't know what would be hard about it. Those three holes may only line up in one position, even though they may appear to be the same distance from each other. I replaced the dust boots on both of mine on the front and didn't have any issues. Replaced both sides in about an hour, without any help. And I didn't lay on the ground to do it.
