Newbie Forum - Beginner/newbie/general DSM modification questions. First mods, how to run 10's when you haven't run 12's yet, any tech question that doesn't fit in another tech forum.
You don't need a 4 wheel align afterward unless you are changing the ride hieght.
Are you sure? I changed a shock mount on my old Pulsar and after everything was back together, it seemed like the alignment was off a bit, and it wasn't before the repair.
Is it worth it to even bother changing them myself. I need to car ASAP but I do have something to drive for now. I do not have a way to compress the springs unless Autozone would have one for rent, which I doubt. But I'm always down for learning and trying new things.
If someone could tell me if its worth the time vs money saved that would be great. Also they said if I purchased them myself I would need 4 struts and the mounts.
Do the eBay KYB GR-2 kits come with the mounts? If not where do I buy these? Is there anything else they will need for the install or something else I should replace while I'm there as well?
This is what I plan to buy so far:
I can't speak for the pulsar but I do know that if the ride hieght is not changed then the aligment should not change.
It would save you 360.00 to change them yourself. How handy are you I would say that if you have any mechanic skill at all it shouldn't be that hard and could probably be done in four hours. You can rent the spring compressor tool from Autozone. As I recall there is a 50 deposit on it. As for the bushing I had Autozone order them for me.
IDK where to find them even.
I think Autozone has them for 14 bucks so I think I'm going to go that route.
Do I need to replace the bump stops at 15 each or the bushings at 10 each?
But then once people started saying it could be the strut mounts which one is it? I honestly don't want to replace all this considering it will get up in the $300 price range so if its just the strut mount could someone please tell me if it was for them?
