    Been told if you take the bolt front the shock to hub carrier out, then the shock and spring will come off seperatly to the hub! is that right? was there any resistance?

    One bolt secures the hub to the shock. This bolt is usually very tight which may mean that you have to use a little pressure to slide the hub off of the bottom of the shock.

    Be sure to take care when letting the hub rest as you will notice it will put stress on the sensor wires. Be sure that you take measures to protect these and the brake pipe flexi.

    Once the hub is free undo the 13mm nuts on the top of the suspension turret and remove the shock from the vehicle

    Take note that there is a nipple on the top mount that aligns it into the correct position when re-fitting

    i've done plenty of vauxhalls before, but the hub and shock had to be removed as 1, caliper off, sensors unplugged, driveshafts out, ball joints to bottom arm, anti roll bar, track rod had to be seperated. them the 3 bolts on top. just didn't think bms would be that easy. cheers
