Have a quick question, installing H&Rs

Hi,

My friend has an 03 gt, he needs to know what size the bolts are to lower the rear drive shaft. They are the bolts right behind the brake disks.

He thinks its 20mm, but isnt sure and doesn't have anything that fits so he needs to go buy a wrench.

He needs to get the drive shaft lowered so he can replace the springs (as Im sure many of you know)

Thanks!

There are right upa all ovee the internet. Let rear end hang by lifting car by body. Get jack under one side of rear end and raise until it starts to push the other side up somewhat. Basically you want to compress one side and let the other open up completely. Then pry the spring out carefully. I usually tie a rope around the spring so that if it flies out it cant go too far
