I've done numerous suspensions and the xB is one of the easiest 45min job. Here's what you need:
17mm socket (top strut nut/rear shock nut)
12mm box wrench (top strut mount nuts)
19mm socket (strut to spindle bolts/nuts)
14mm socket (brakeline bracket bolt)
Floor jack/jack stands
2 new top strut nuts
Now the thing is do you have any mechanical abilities?
Maybe one of the guys in your area who has done these can give you a hand
I just did a guys here in SC this past weekend
If you have any question as to your abilities...........pay a shop to do it.
There is nothing wrong with paying for a bit of "peace of mind"
alright htanks where do u think i can get some and for about how much? im kinda way low on cash i just bought wheels and springs so i dont really have money to be spendin.Pitman said:Not really I would bet that most guys don't replace them. But for a few bucks might as well ........these are not nylon lock nuts they have "gills" on the bottom that act as a locking mechanisim after one use they can "wear down" and might not be as affective ............but with that said......it's up to you. it is recommended however.
