Nick,

 

As noted at the very beginning of page one "You don't need to remove the wipers. Just lift up the plastic covering/shroud after removing the little metal clips, then you can access the rear bolt hiding there".

 

But the part that I'm amazed at is how did you remove the strut without performing page 4???

 

Everyone realizes that you may be the Ford Edge Sport GOD and you find no value in our efforts however, we've been receiving multitudes of kudos and appreciation from others who do.

 

At every opportunity we even make a special effort to give you, Xtra & Root credit i.e. "however lets not forget who motivated us".

 

BTW, you have consistently been the only negative critique to our efforts to help others, oh well I guess there has to be one in every group.

 

Oh, we failed to mention Happy Holidays Brother-In-Arms... :salute:  :salute:  :salute:  

 

3 pages, I thought the text was it's own page.
Must be personal to you, cause I have no clue what your talking about btw...

Ok I finished the fronts. my passenger front side sits 3/4" higher than the driver side (ground to fender). not sure if they will settle with time, but its quite noticeable as of right now.  anyway, i didn't take off the wipers, but for everything else, here are the tools required:

 

Flathead Screwdriver (for pushpins if you are removing the plastic wiper cowl trim)

8mm (for the screws holding the lower plastic tray)

13/16" for lugnuts

10mm for the brake line bracket

6mm hex for center of sway bar end link

18mm for sway bar end link nut

24mm for strut to spindle nuts***

***Note that these bolts must be removed by taking the nut off, not by spinning the bolt head side. they have ridges/splines that keep them in place on the spindle.

hammer (for smacking out the spindle mount bolts)

13mm for strut tower bolts

21mm for strut nut for top hat removal

 

simple!

Your best bet is to just call a dealer. they have the info you need. have your vin # handy. you might even have better results stopping by in person, they tend to take people more seriously. 

 

the rear subframe i used the impact gun and ran it down same as i would my lug nuts. not that its the technical way to do it.. but that's what i did.

The H&R springs from Tire Rack  #28759-2, it states for AWD models. Will these also work on the 2015 FWD Sports?
