    Changing front shocks

    I have a 01 SS and I have used the search bar to find out how to do the front struts, My main question is the removal of the master clynder to get the top bolts out on the driver side? I read that if you have to bleed the breaks on a pre 99 car you need to go to the dealer and they have to use a scan tool because of the TCS? Is this true? Anyone point me to a wright up on this? Thanks

    That should have all you need to know there. I did not have to do anything with the master cylinder except loosen it up a bit (not take it off) and tighten it back up when I was done.

    Just loosen the two nuts that secure the master cylinder to the firewall and finagle it out of the way. Nothing should leak out - you only need to move it to gain access to the #50 (I think) torx bolts. The brake lines only allow so much movement (it IS more than enough, though) so don't force anything, you don't need to!

    ^^^True dat!!! Oh yeah, you then loosen and lift up the ABS block that the master lines run to- rigid brake lines don't bend easily!! I think they're 15mm bolts. So, in order to move the master cylinder, the ABS block must be moved too.
