What type of vehicle?


1997 camero rs convertable

If you have coil springs in the rear, you need to have two jacks. One will jack up the car up to take the tire off and be able to get to the shocks. The second jack will be used to stabilize the bottom of the coil pan so it doesn't drop down once you remove the shock and it will stay in perfect position to replace the new shock.
