2012 XC60 90k broken rear spring - level of effort?

Post by IronMike » Sun Jan 13, 2019 3:08 pm

Backing out of driveway today and BANG! I’ve done front springs and struts, the rear seems easier but wondering about gotchas? Does the knuckle need to be detached? Assume I still need compressor but seems tight in there...

How are these held in at the top, just seems to be a shock mount wih no bolts?

Here is what VIDA shows, can't say it is clear what needs to be done, but apparently special tools are needed.

Some of the parts stores have tool loan/rental. They might have a mechanical external spring compressor.
