Hello
Went to talk about rear springs and get a price at the local dealer and was told there are serveral p/n's and I am to look it up on the tag inside the door for the code for replacements. Instead I'd like to swap mine out with a complete spring/ strut assy. from the salvage yard off of a low mileage junker.
Can I do this? Don't they all bolt up anyways? The car I have in mind is a 96 wagon, mines a 96LX .
Thx
Andy

Thanks Brad... so that I am straight here, are you saying I can pull the assemblies from any 96 sedan to fit on my sedan?
I'm clear that theere is a diff with wagon assys.
thanks again
Andy

looks like they are easy enough to remove but a bit of a stretch to get at the top bolts from inside the trunk

For the rear struts you need to take out the rear shelf cover to access the bolts.
