    I can't find the answer anywhere and I've done several searches.

    Has anyone installed the OME nitrocharger shocks here!?! The shock came in a box and the spring cup was not attached to the shock body. Im not sure if i have to weld the cup that holds the spring to the shock body? Or do I just seat the cup onto the lip of the shock?

    Thanks in advance!!!!

    It slips over the shock, and rests on teh shock body. There is a ring welded to the shock in which it rests on.

    ^^Listen to Chris. Dude knows what's up.
    No welding is necessary. That cup just slips on. It will be held in place after assembly by the rubber bushings, the top plate, and the top center nut.
