Hi - do you know if can repair or replace XLR headlight lenses that have developed cracking?Ok i would need some photos of the headlights to see how bad they are. We have a guy looking to make new outer lens. Some ofvthem if the scratchesvare too deep cannot be made to look much better. I will round up the manuals. Another member borrowed them and i need to get them back.
Thank you for the info Michael but I respectfully disagree on the working too hard part. The key here is “the special socket”. If you haven’t changed one of these shocks you are probably going to be working too hard. If you don’t have a special socket you are probably going to be working too hard. The other part is, after doing the first one I was able to cut the time in half on the second one.Your working way too hard on it. The front ones if anyone is doing them, you just jack the car up put stands under the frame . then a jack under the control arm. There is a special socket that fits inside the stock shock with a wrench you unbolt the nut while holding the shaft. Then you remove the four bolts that mount the control arms to the frame. Just check if there are shims behind them. 90% of the time nothing but one washer per bolt lower the jack and the shock comes right out. .on the sims the two wire go to the shock plug the three wire go to the position module that links to the control arm. I go the extra 5 minutes and remove the link and module to cut out noise weight and clean up the look. Ill try and send you some photos to tie the wiring up so its out of the way.
