    Hello guy im new here. watching this topic for a while.. My gf got an stock 2009 sedan and it's time to change the rear shock !

    I did made some research.

    So if i am correct 5987 would be good for stock replacement .

    BUT the 5987 is for an 2000-2004 Toyota Echo
    And the 5984 is for an 2000-2004 Volkswagen Jetta (Both sedan)

    And that's for the Monroe OE Spectrum
    And the Jetta around here is the DOUBLE price. (Volks) for barely the same shock.

    So just wanted to know if i am correct and just to correct the first post . It could induce new like me in error. Hope to find soon front shock.

    ok got my new shocks in the mail the other day and plan to install them tomorrow, everything looks easy enough. My only question is i do or i don't need to modify the rubber bushing at the top of the shock?

    My walk-through post pretty much explains everything.

    Some people claim they were able to thread the nut without modifying the bushing, I was not able to.

    Planning on installing these shocks in the future? Without cutting the rubber bushings in half? Just take the top washer an put a slight concave in it. This allows plenty of thread exposed so the you an start the nut. Notice that the nut is threaded completely on to the shock with extra thread protruding through.
