rear shock break down done !

I have foun out how to bread dow the rear shocks and change the spring installed height. I will be posting pics later this weekend on the second shock as well as information on how to do it and what to watch out for.

There is a much faster way to change shock oil as well.

Youall are a morbid bunch today. LOL

When I saw the avitar and got to the end of the first sentence, I thought we had a "low rider" who got lost in the wrong forum.
