Stock Coilover Removed

Here's the stock coilover (right) on its way out. Installing the new shocks on the vehicle was ridiculously simple. There was no need to remove the tie rods or unbolt the upper control arms from the steering knuckles. The trickiest part was prying the lower control arms down far enough to fit the new shocks in place. This was a two-person job: one to operate a long pry bar between the frame and the lower control arm, and the other to bolt the shock into place. The lower shock eye spacers are not the same length. Put the longer spacer toward the front of the vehicle.
