But can the rear shocks be replaced by not removing the springs and pads? Is it really necessary to replace the rear spring pads if the spring can remain in place during the R&R of the shocks? I did not see you do that in your video.
I replaced the rear shock mounts and that was it in the rear. No need to mess with the springs at all.
