1993 RS America H & R Sport Springs

Suspension and Steering

Vehicle Information: Year: 1993; Body Type: Coupe; Engine (type, size, modifications): 3.6 ltr stock; Total Mileage: 40k;

I have a 1993 RS America that I just bought a set of H & R Sport Springs for her. I know that she will need to be re-aligned and corner balanced after the installation of the Sport Springs. I am fortunate to have a neighbor who owns a shop right down the street and has offered to let me use one of his lifts for the spring installation and a few PCA members want to help me install the springs, and then write a tech article with pictures. I found a procedure on the web at Johns 964 website in the UK and have the Bentley 964 manual. I know that fasteners lose clamping force any time that they are reused. The procedure doesnt mention replacing any fasteners, yet the Bentley manual does. I plan on replacing the locknuts and lower shock mount fasteners. My question is: Do you know of any other fasteners I should replace during the installation, or have any other suggestions? The Springs are on a 2 week back order, and Im dropping the engine in my 914-6 for routine maintenance next weekend, Ive got a great neighbor. So the spring installation will occur after the engine goes back in the 914-6. Thank you for your time and information, I appreciate it.Best regards
