    Quick Coilover fitting question

    Hi all,

    After all the issues I have had with the raceland coilovers I have now received mine. I want to fit the rear dampers myself but need the correct socket. I know they are some form of torque socket but anybody know the correct size so i can pop out and buy it this afternoon?

    Thanks

    Matt

    cant remember the size mate but i just used an ordinary ring spanner when i took mine off! We also used the same method on Kyles Coupe when doing his!

    How long do you reckon it would take to do? I just need to change both rear dampers?

    I just used a toothed socket on mine. Worked a treat
    It would definitely go better with an engine in it
