I used a ratchet strap to compress the shock, my t-rex arms couldn't finish the jobDo some pushups to get ready for installing the Bilsteins.
Compressing the Bilsteins is WAYYYY different than compressing the factory shocks
You might need to use a big flat blade screwdriver or a prybar to lever the lower shock eye into place.
But with that said, it is a very easy and VERY worthwhile operation.
username checks out. he really is superThank you Superdannyboy
just a bit? they might not notice just a little bit, except for the brief slippery feeling on their knuckles as they drag through it...
oh nuh uh you didn't go thereSince Bilsteins are under quite alot of pressure, and very hard to compress while installing, do they lift the bed height any? Its already too high!
or was it the other way around? sorry couldn't pass that upZaius is right... the install is super easy. 4 bolts no real need to lift the truck, but compressing the shock was a pita for me (eibachs). I had to muscle them upwards and have my daughter ready to push the bolt through. I'd suggest that extra person just to make the install a breeze.
We put a quart of gas in a guys VW Beetle everyday after he kept bragging about his gas mileage. He came in one day and said Holy Crap! Now I’m getting 70 mpg!
Harley's don't leak oil, they mark their territory like a Wolf!I'm surprised you had to , they usually do that on their own...
