Modification Details

What Is Being Fitted?

In this How2 we are fitting the rear components of the Bilstein streetline kit.
This kit was supplied from Smartarse Design.

Quick Tip

To make the removal of the spring easier you should disconnect the
drive shafts from the rear hubs, this info can be found
It isn't necessary to remove the shafts totally though.


Remove the rear wheels and remove the arch liners.

Undo the bottom shock absorber bolt with a 16mm spanner and an E14 socket.
Remove the bolt and pull the bottom of the shock away from the mounts.
