    New to site. My 2011 stock EL has 123,000 miles and is like riding a Pogo stick. I'm planning to replace front and rear shocks with Bilstein 4600 so am looking for some instructions to safely perform the work.
    I am mechanically inclined and have necessary hand tools but no impact tools.

    Go to suspensiom or 3rd gen forums for more info. 07 - 13 suspensions are identical.


    In short though:

    1) you might want preassembled coilovers from Monroe or Rancho if you're newish to changing shocks

    2) you want a cordless impact, decent brand name 19-20v lithium 1/2" models should do the trick... cheaper than a chiropractor
