OUR SHOCKS THAT HAVE COVERS WILL STILL COME APPART THE SAME WAY.

Click to enlarge1USE A THICK CLOTH WRAPPED AROUND THE TOP SHOCK MOUNT, AND LIGHTLY SQUEESE THAT END IN YOUR SHOP VISE, WITH THE SHOCK POINTING UP, (THE SHOCK WILL BE UPSIDE DOWN)

THEN HAVE YOUR BUDDY PULL DOWN ON THE SPRING ENOUGHT TO GET YOUR # 14MM OPEN END WRENCH ON THE LOCK NUT THAT WILL APPEAR AS HE PULLS DOWN. "NOT TO BRAG, BUT I DID THIS ALL BY MYSELF" (:

Click to enlarge2THEN STICK SOMETHING LIKE A BIG SCREWDRIVER OR PUNCH IN THE BOTTOM SHOCK EYE AND START UNSCREWING COUNTERCLOCK WISE. THERE ARE THREADS IN THE BOTTOM ALUMINUM PART. THE THREADS ARE COATED WITH LOCKTITE, SO IT WILL TAKE A SMALL GRUNT TO GET IT STARTED.

Click to enlarge4YOU CAN THEN SLIDE IT ALL APPART

Click to enlarge5MAKE SURE YOU SLIDE THE WHITE PLASTIC BUSHING OFF ,, THEN SLIDE ON THE PAINTED OR CHROME CAP AND SLIDE THE PLASTIC BUSHING BACK ON JUST AS IT CAME OFF.

Click to enlarge6SLIDE THE CAP ON, THEN THE BUSHING

Click to enlarge7PULL THE ROD OUT ALL THE WAY AND SLIDE THE RUBBER SWIPER DOWN TO MEET THE SHOCK BODY. THIS WILL HELP WHEN GOING BACK TOGETHER.

Click to enlarge8I CAN PUSH THE SPRING DOWN AND TAKE A PICTURE ,, BUT I DON'T HAVE AN EXTRA HAND TO START THE LOWER SHOCK MOUNT BACK ON ... SO I JUST WENT TO THE VISE AND WAS ABLE TO GET IT STARTED WITH MY TWO HANDS

Click to enlarge9I WAS ABLE TO USE THE NUT ON THE ROD TO HOLD DOWN THE SPRING WHILE I GOT THE WRENCH ON THE NUT AND SCREWED THE LOWER MOUNT BACK ON MOST OF THE WAY

Click to enlarge10THEN JUST TIGHTEN THE LOCK NUT BACK UP, DON'T FORGET YOU MAY WANT TO USE SOME LOCKTITE JUICE... I DON'T , BUT I LIVE ON THE EDGE

Click to enlarge11JUST YANK THE WRENCH OUT AND SNAP THE SPRING INTO POSITION, AND THERE YA GO
