I disconnected the water and the power first. I then removed the back of the machine. I also removed the 8 screws that hold the top and slid it forward to release it from the clips. I tilted the to up withour removing any wires. I then put a 2X4 accross the top and used #14 electrical wire to lift the drum up so I could attach the spring. It was easy to remove nad replace the shock absorbers once the release was pressed down on each pin. I did have to remove two screws that held a control panel top the base of the machine on the left lower corner. (looking from the back of the machine) to make it easier to remove and install that shock absorber. That part of the install was a breeze. The parts were all correct and arrived quickly.
