Did this video help you?

ndapottershands: on my Mazda 5 I'm told that my struts doesn't need replacing but the dust cover isn't secured. How can I fix that!;??????

Alberto González Burgos: Great video dude, now i know how to change the shocks on my m3 hb. 

Adam Gould: Thanks for the video. Did the swap out yesterday. My issue was the bottom 17mm bolts. Needed a breaker bar to get those off, and it was tight given the clearance I had jacked up. Had to have the bar towards the front of the car. Didn't get anywhere near your 2 hours benchmark; more than double that! :)

ward camp: Given the height of your car off the ground.  Curious why you showed endless bolt turning but not how you removed the shock from the wheel well.  The shock over 2 feet tall.  You would need to remove the mount bracket while in the wheel well and then the bellow and dust cover.  Pop the cup holder from the inside and raised the shock up into the car interior and even with that it barely pulls through.  I cannot image how you pulled it out knowing what I know now and you conveniently did not show it in the video.   The hardest part of a DYI job is removing the old part.  After I did the first one, I was able to do the second in under 20 minutes.  With a proper jack, I could do the whole job again in 45 min.

Kurt Sanderson: The nut on the top of the shock is 13mm

Lukasz Matlok: how much power you used to screw bolts on with a torque wrench??

SubieLover 35: Initial d music tho

Brian Spittell: Great video! Used it to swap out the shocks with no problem.

JD Davis: Dammit weld nut i was wrenchin on it for awhileee

John Barry: Thanks for this. Just did the job with Koni Yellow struts. One suggestion for loosening the nuts on top of the strut mount. USE WD 40 or some lubricant. I made the job much easier (oh and remembering "righty tighty, lefty loosy"). 

Jose Velez: Thanks for the video it was a blessing I'm replacing mine right away God bless you

Rich Bird: Thanks Garrett, followed your video and did the today

Zak Pino: the top part thing!!! lol.

Bill Fig: Thanks for the video, replaced my shocks on my 2010 mazda 5, was same process as your video, nuts were very hard to crack, used a lot of wd40 and hammer hitting wrench to finally crack them, after that was piece of cake.

Mike McReynolds: Great Video.. Where does the really big hammer come in? Just kidding. Hey the reason for all the bad shocks comes from those crappy wheels. Made for anything but US roads. (maybe out west somewhere) Anyway Mom will hug you if you can get rid of the low profile tires, I have broken shocks and wheels from potholes in Chicagoland. Infinity 16 inch alloys and taller tires made a world of difference on my Maz5. OMG! potholes are manageable..weee. Now for my replacement shocks. lol great Video!

Bran Collingwood: Great job thanks - you really make it look easy

Dom Landry: Thanks Subaru Man very helpfull video! Saves me a lot of money!

Yasser Hassan: This problem is very common with this car . I have the same problem with my 2009 Mazda 5 ,it is only even though it is only 5 years old car. thanks for the video it is very helpful 

Roberto Sada: Thanks for the video, it is really simple to replace the shock.

DeejayErez: How much were the shocks?
