Here is the first stage.... I'm going ahead and prepping the truck before Pointer and ******* get here at 7am to help me finish up this beast.

Here is the first picture of many to come of my truck being jacked up!! I'll update periodically. I have my laptop in the garage if anyone has any helpful hints along the way, just PM me. POINTER, remember the Jack Stands and the Reciprocating Saw..... and also, the beer is in the fridge.

You can get all the tools ready. Unwrap the parts and lay them out. Get some kind of light to aim on the work area. Metric wrenches, rags, lubricant for helping the bolts break loose. I spray the threads with PB Blaster and let it soak in for a few minutes.

Shock/Strut is out Left side

Question?

can i remove the top shock plate and 17mm nut before I compress the spring? I think I should have rented the strut compressor instead of the spring compressor.....

this one was a lot quicker.... 13 minutes!


Air tools rule. :thumbup: I use mine whenever possible. Plus they're pretty cheap compared to electric power tools. Most of mine are Ingersol Rand. Be sure to add a little air tool oil in the fitting after each hour of use.
