Installing Rear Coil Springs Again
Posted 16 December 2003 - 11:30 PM
I guess I should get to my question. A while back I was reading something online about installing new coils, and they showed a way to replace the rear coils without removing the strut. They removed the large strut nut, jacked up the car, removed the wheel and pulled out the old coil spring.
Has anyone ever attempted this on an Impreza wagon? Is this even possible? I’m only asking, because I don’t want to disconnect the brake lines again to remove the struts. I guess I could cut the brake line bracket on the strut. I just don’t feel comfortable doing it. I have this thing about Jerry rigging stuff.
I appreciate the help.

Just take the strut out......it will give you more room to do things, and you'll be less likely to skin knuckles, and forget something.
