First thing we are going to do is remove all four wheels and tires. Now using a 15mm socket and an 18mm wrench, remove the lower shock bolt. Next we are going to remove the upper shock bolt, but first we have to lower the machine to get access to the bolt.
Using a 15mm socket and an 18mm wrench, we are going to remove the upper shock bolts. The upper shock bolts will be located directly below the crossbar underneath the hood.
Now that everything is loose, we’re going to go ahead and remove the bolt and then the shock. Now moving on to the rear. We are going to remove the lower shock bolt. Use a 10mm Allen socket wrench and an 18mm wrench. Remove the upper shock bolt using the 15mm wrench and an 18mm wrench.
Now that it’s loose we are going to go ahead and remove the bolt and the shock. Repeat the same steps on the opposite side.
Now we are going to install our spring spacer to our shocks. There are many methods to doing it. We are going to be using our spring compressor. Let’s get on over to the shop.
The first step is to put the shock on the lower portion of the spring compressor, ensuring that it is securely in place and making sure the reservoir is facing down. Place the spring compressor arms on the spring, making sure not to max out the spring compressor. Leave approximately five inches of space for the compressor to release the spring. When compressing the spring, make sure the spring stays securely in place on the compressor.
Once the spring is compressed, remove the retaining plate, decompress the spring, and remove from the shock. Place the spacer on the shock and then reinstall the spring again, being sure to leave approximately five inches between the top of the compressor. Once the spring is compressed, reinstall the retaining plate, ensuring that it fully seats on the shock and the spring. Then decompress the spring. Remove the shock from the compressor. Then repeat the steps for the other three.
Now that we have the spring spacers installed, it’s time to reinstall the shocks and wheels and tires.
