    Best order to install parts?


    I got a few parts to install, and wonder what is the best order in which to replace them?
    I have:

    shocks (all 4) (stock springs)
    Rotors and pads (fronts)
    Relocation brackets.

    Advise on what order to replace them to make the least amount of work, without messing anything up would be much appreciated.

    1. My guess is rear shocks and relo brackets first.

    2. Then replace front shocks.

    3. Then install front rotor and pads.

    Is that best?
    Thanks for the advise.

    I usually go with the hardest to the easiest or what is furthest in to the outermost (DUH) depending on what is required. Your plan sounds about right. Although I am not looking at your car I think I would do the front first because it sounds more involved. Metaphorically it's like going down the mountain.

    I would remove the front brake rotors and pad first, then change the front shocks(start on the drivers side). After you're completely done with installing the front shocks start installing the new rotors and pads. Then do rear shocks and final the relocation brackets.
