Shock tool?

Postby Run4lo » April 5th, 2009, 1:55 pm

I curse you Sean Leanard! I was talking to Sean at breakfast yesterday and was telling him I was changing my shocks. He asked if I had one of those shock tools for the fronts. I probably looked at him weird because I didn't know what he was talking about. Well now I do! Sure could of used one...

Unless you want to keep them... I either just cut the tops off or crank on the shock a few times back and forth and bust them off. Also Channel locks on the top of the shock...to hold that ring thing...then buzz the nut off the stud. Everything is ghetto in my garage, don't have a correct tool for anything I dont think.

Let me know if you snap off the rear bolts. Got a little bit of experience there.
