    Doing my install today and would like to see a few pics of the install process but can't find a thread with working pics, any help? There are a couple things I'm confused about. And yes, I did try the search, I'm just not good at it I guess

    Are you talking about the rear shock? If so just use an adjustable wrench, or a socket...8mm I believe.

    Yeah...if your doing the fronts, then make sure you have spring compressors on. DO NOT REMOVE THE TOP BOLT without the spring compressed!
