Taking off suspension

Alright im 16 with plenty of experience with cars but not so much suspension.I was parting my lude and ready to remove my skunk2 springs and kyb struts.I dont know how it works but is it safe for me to remove with right tools and etc.Dont need to sep anything or however it works just wanna literally pull complete as one for w\e comes off easiest way as one.Kind of confusing but I dont wanna be doing something really crazy that ive heard is dangerous depending on what you take off as certain things.

Re: Taking off suspension

if you don't need to separate the spring from the shock than it's real easy.

remove bolts from top mount. should be 2 in rear and 3 in front.

remove strut from lower control arm in rear and whala rear is out...

front is a lil trickier but not hard at all. not 100% about 4th gen set up but just unbolt shock from all mounting points and pull it out.

make sure you have 4 jack stands.

or blocks of wood.

Top: 3 12/14 mm nuts.
Shock to shock fork: 1 14mm bolt

Done, then pull the assembly out. If you're having a hard time getting it out, you can unbolt the UCA w/ the 2 17mm nuts.
