I had to do an alternator on the '08 last year. I did it from the top.

When you see how weak the stock shocks are, you'll want to use the konis.

I bought stock rear shocks because of time constraints, and when I unboxed them, Inwas certain they were already blown.

They're supposed to be 1.4", which is about the same as the eibachs.

Sounds like this was taken apart kind of haphazardly, based on the leaks/problems you're finding. Wonder if it got a new head gasket or something and was just put back together poorly.

It's worth noting that the thing says up to 07 9-5.

Either pick up a good spare and toss 'er in, or for diagnosis- swap them around, and see if the misfire follows.
