BMW 525iT (E34) Rear Strut (Shock) Replacement

This should be about a one hour job. But it’s not, because you have to disassemble most of the interior south of the rear seats to do it. If you know exactly what you’re doing, expect 2-3 hours. Any references to right or left sides of the vehicle are relative to the driver’s seating position.

Replacing strut cartridges properly, and safely, requires use of a spring compressor. The same tool works for both front and rear struts and only costs ~$30. If you do not have the correct tool for this procedure, do not attempt it. Download free BMW 525iT (E34) Rear Strut (Shock) Replacement.pdf here
