Prep 1 – Gather your tools.

As a minimum you will need:
  • 15mm open-end wrench
  • 5mm Allen wrench
  • 1/4” or 3/8” drive ratchet - 3/8", then you'll also need a 3/8" knuckle joint
  • 10mm socket (deep well works best)
  • 10mm offset box-end wrench
  • Work light
  • Protective latex or nytril gloves – a lot of scrape points and the additional “grip” is definitely helpful. Heavy mechanics gloves will not fit into these tight spaces

Also helpful but not really necessary
  • Magnetic pickup with extension - this was a real time-saver and in one case meant the difference between locating a dropped bolt inside the cross-member, or stopping the install to buy another bolt
  • Magnetic catch pan - handy for holding everything
  • A good microfiber towel to put between the top of the strut tower and the fuel pressure regulator setup to keep from scratching the paint - you'll want to put something between the car and the FPR setup
