A.K.A. How to spend a lot of money on stuff that nobody will ever notice except you Hi Fchatters, I spent the winter rebuilding my 308's rear suspension. Not because I am a glutton for punishment or like to empty my wallet, but because this is one of those projects that is classified as a WYAIMAW project ("While You're At It, Might As Well "). It all started when I bought the car last spring and noticed that it made a lot of clunking noises from the rear suspension. The noises got quieter as the car warmed up and was driven, only to return when it was cold. The experts here at Fchat pointed me in the direction of the shocks. Apparently when they are old, they make a lot of noise. So, I decided to replace or rebuild the shocks. "Well," I thought, "While I'm at it, I might as well replace the suspension bushings." Fine enough. Next, Verell (Famous Fchat guru, who luckily for me, unluckily for him, lives about 45 minutes from my house) suggested that if you have to take the A arms out to replace the bushings, you might as well powder coat them. Heck, makes a good time to replace the fuel lines when the wheels and wheelwells are out. You have to remove the airbox to get to the carbs for the fuel line, so why not refinish the airbox too. You see where I'm going with this!! (There were suggestions of also rebuilding the brakes, etc. while it was all apart, but with a baby in the house, I thought I better keep it within the realm of reason.) So here it is. I rarely get the chance to "give back" to the Fchat community that has given so much knowledge to me, so I hope this helps someone out with their rear suspension rebuild. DISCLAIMER! I am not an expert mechanic or anything, sort of a learn as you go kinda guy, so if I did something really stupid, please be kind! Step 1 Jack up the back of the car on both sides to get the rear wheels off the ground. Remove the back wheels.
