Re: [T3] Rear Shocks Shock


In answer to my own question, here's what I did:

I phoned the Monroe distributor, whose advice was to cut the sleeve to the
right length. I did this. It turned out I cut it fractionally too short, so
I put a large washer on the bolt between the shock absorber and its housing
to keep it still. The next owner of the car will undoubtedly be very
surprised to find a whacking great washer in there.

Once it was all torqued to spec (50 lbs ft.),  the shock absorber (I've only
done one so far) seems completely stable with no side to side play.
