Up front, the steering, track bar and upper control arms must be removed from the front axle as a first step. This allows for the removal of the old coil spring and shock. Once they are out of the way, a small amount of the plastic inner fender lining must be trimmed to allow room for the new anodized aluminum shock-mounting tower. Once the tower is in place, the remote reservoir must be fed through an opening in the side. A stud ring can then be fitted to secure the shock tower in place. Next, a new longer progressive coil spring is installed on each side. Once both coils are in place, the axle can be reconnected to the upper control arms as well as the steering and track bar. The lower shock mount is then secured to the axle.
