Rear Shocks - Which Way is Up

M

Guest
Hi All,

I am just about to reinstall my rear shocks which have
been off the car all winter. I can not remember which
way is up and it is not real clear from the parts
manual.

If you envision the shock as two parts, the shock body
and the strut which extends out from the shock, which
side is the top and which the bottom?

Thanks,

Mike I.

<font face="Arial" size="2">Mike, body is at the bottom, strut is at the top. Check the bushes carefully and I wipe the chrome part of the shock with WD40 or similar as it's pitting there that eventually kills them. </font>
