EDIT: additional question[s] added... scroll down several posts below:
I pretty much don't know jack about wrenching, so don't laugh too hard at me here ...trying to install my rear 5100's which I thought would take all of 10 minutes but so far it's not turning out that way. I have 2 questions:
1- How do I squeeze the lower rubber bushing that surrounds the shock eyelett in between the lower shock mount brackets without bitching up the rubber? Should I just pound the bottom of the shock with a mallet and "make it fit" in between the brackets?
2- How do I prevent the stanchion rod from spinning when I tighten the nut down on the top of the shock?
THanks for any tips...
