In the process of fixing a 2007 LX which is mostly rust free except in a few spots. One of the spots is on the shield that covers the driver side rear shock. I'm a little nervous about replacing the entire shock due to fighting with the upper nut and AHC line. From what I hear it can be a series of unfortunate events when things break removing the AHC shock and I don't want to go there if I don't have to. I plan on riding the AHC until it fails and parts costs get too expensive. I don't want to summon it's demise just to fix this problem. Is there any way to replace just that sleeve without unbolting the top of the shock. Any other suggestions? Someone somewhere said they cut out the rust and used some pvc pipe in it's place but I can't for the life of me find that post again. If anyone has done this photos and details would be awesome!
