Im going to be installing the HAL front and rear shocks. I know i can reuse the stock hardware on the front.

What is required to do the rears?

IIRC, the lower hardware is a different size on the rears, but don't remember what the difference is.

The fronts will bolt up using the supplied hardware. A lift and the special socket to remove the top bolt is very helpful. In the rear you will need new top bolts and new bolts for the bottom of the shock. Take a rear shock to your favorite Bolt store (not Home Depot) and get two bolts and nuts that fit through the holes. 1/2 inch if memory serves but a similar metric size will work too. On the top you need 4 bolts and nuts in the factory size but longer 1 1/2 inches will work. The bolts shipped with the shocks are too large in diameter to fit the factory holes.
OR if you have an air wrench & a helper they can be made to fit. Just hope I never have to take them out.

The 'Help' brand shock bolt kit from your local auto store did the job per members here.
