Big Bore Shocks
I just got some big bore shocks from my lhs (I just got back 10 min ago) and now i need to know how to get them ready to put on my N4-TEC.
Ok, heres what you do for each shock:
Take one of the shafts, and put an E clip on one of the slots. Then take the piston(I like to use 1 hole pistons), and slide it on over the E clip. Then take another E clip and put it on the other side of the piston to secure it. Nesxt, take one of the aluminum shock bodies, slide the shaft down the shock body with the piston entering last. The seals shopuld all ready be in the shock body so your ready for the next step. Now you have to screw the connecting piece to the bottom of the shaft(the part that bolts to the sus. arm). Then you will have to put the rubber bubble bulge thing in the shock cap then the body up to the top with shock oil. Move the shock up and down slowly to revome any air bubbles under the piston(don't go all the way to the top with the piston). Whrn you get all of the air out, and the piston is at the bottom, top it off with a drop more of oil, then screw the cap on tight, but not too tight. Then move the piston up and down to make sure it moves freely, and but on the upper spring holder, the spring, and bottom spring holder. Bolt it on to your car and your ready to go!
Good luck with the new shocks!
