Replacing stock shocks.

Getting ready to replace the shocks in my truck. Is there any problems that anyone had while trying to do so. Trying to figure this out so I know what I am dealing with

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Just take the front ones to a shop if you dont have a wall mounted spring compressor.

The rears are a direct take off and put on. And like Chris said, take the front setup to a shop with a spring compressor to have them put on the new shocks for you. When you take off the front ones, just take off the 3 smaller nuts on the top and DO NOT REMOVE THE LARGER MIDDLE NUT, it holds the shock in place, if you remove that there's a possibility that the shock may shoot out and that could be ugly.
