Post Bilstein 5100 Strut and Coil Assembly Diagram

This might be helpful.

I'm not sure about the lower bushing. It is shown on Nissan's diagram here, but I'm not clear on whether it is necessary to install it with the Bilstein. I'll update the diagram if I'm told it is not.

When I get a chance, I'll add links to aftermarket replacements for the OEM parts.

Put my adj. Bilstein on yesterday and it only had one rubber bushing. The one on the top plate. Anyone else only have one?

Assuming that the rubber bushing came off the stock strut (because Bilstein is super nice and doesn't include a bushing kit), then yes that's fine.

The reason that I put 2 bushings on the diagram is because Nissan's own diagrams of the stock struts show 2 bushings. Other companies such as Rancho include 2 bushings per strut kit. I called up Rancho and they were nice enough to provide me a bushing kit so I used 2 bushings per strut since I had them. Nevertheless, I'm sure that 1 is just fine.

Would this be the same for the 4600's. Also, what is the purpose of the metal spacer/collar?

1. Don't know about the 4600s.
2. I wondered that as well; I assume, though, that its purpose is to help keep the bushing centered. I suspect it isn't crucial.

I'm ordering 4600's all around and I assume they won't have bushings either. Guess I'll order the bushing now since the 10 year old ones on my ride are likely shot. Should probably order new isolators as well.

I need help. Sometimes I wonder why I try to fix thing myself.

I was following the front shock replacement guide here and ran into some snags. First off I'm unable to get 2 of the 3 shock mount bolts loosened. The front one loosened easy enough but the other 2 are frozen and want to strip when I try to remove them. I've hit them several times with penitrating oil.

The bigger problem though is that I went to remove the ball joint from the upper control arm using a pitman puller. It broke free easily enough but now the entire bolt assembly is spinning. I can not remove the nut without the moth part of the control arm moving. I hate to try grabbing it with vise grips as I don't want to Mar it up.

What can I do now?

Has anyone confirmed if you need the two bushings for the strut assembly or not? Or is one ok?

Thanks!
