I tried to install new Gas-A-Just shocks on the front of my T-100 this afternoon, but i couldn't get them to fit correctly. The through bolt on the top of the shock doesn't seem to be long enough to have both bushings on it and still be able to tighten the top nut. Secondly, the flanges on the shocks are not angled properly to the lower control arm and it seems the flanges are also to wide. Whats up? I tripled checked the part number to make sure I had the correct ones and I do. I have a 96 2WD Extended cab. And the part number for the shocks I have are KG4752.
Any help would be much appreciated.
Do ya have any pics of what you are trying to do? If you have the truck up on a jack maybe the bolt isn't long enough to get lined up. I just did my truck I used the Biliesten shocks. I had to move around the bottom flanges to get it to line up correct. I took off the tires for the fronts only, and put it on jack stands, and everything worked just fine.
Maybe some one with the KYB shocks will chime in, there are people on here that have them I'm fairly sure of it. Good luck
