    Hi Group,
    My front trunk shocks or struts need to be replaced. My question is how do you get at them? On the passenger side I can get to the front attach point when the head light is up and the rear through the battery well. On the drivers side (see image) I think I can get to the front attach point when the head light is up, but what about the rear attach point? Under the front of the TR there is a cover protecting the condenser and fan. May be if I remove this I can get at the rear attach point of the shock? If you have any advice I'm all ears.
    Thanks in advance,
    Jim

    Hey Jim,
    I also replaced my shock's, the dealer one's were crap, just was not that strong, so I went to Napa (or any car part's business) and got a set from them! Just measure the size of the one's in the car, and it work's great! Plus a LOT cheaper than the dealer ones!! :)

    To remove them, take your time, they are in a tight spot! Click on the link, there is some good advise there..Hope this helps.

    You wouldn't happen to have the brand/parts number of the replacement handy. If yes, can you please post them. Thank you.

    Got your e-mail, thank you very much. I have been a member of the FCA-NW for over 10 years now, I was MIA because I have been in exile for the past few years :) The club has really grown since I remembered it. I will try to attend more events on a regular bases this year. Again, thank you.
