Correct. Did that trick a dozen or more times.xHeart wrote: ↑Mon May 25, 2020 9:19 am The rear of the car is sitting on jack-stand. I'm imaging that removing "stay" will lower the control arm, thus, relatively not perfectly, align the mounting point to the shock's donut. Once the shock is mounted, I'll place a bottle-jack under the knuckle and raise the assembly so the "stay" to align back to its mounts... unless you say otherwise.
Removing "stay" is removing the rear bolt only. Front bolt needs only a few turns, to allow the stay to drop down.
