now i have a question. how in the world do the front shocks come out? i degreased the front suspension and hit it with spray paint for now. i will do it right in a future suspension build. we will be driving this car alot for a while and the front end is all tight so i don’t want to take it all apart right now. i am going to put new shocks on it but the old ones will not come out. i tried to press the flange out of the top of the shock but it won’t come out. the flange is to wide to fit through the top of the spring tower. i can cut it but i don’t know how the new one will go in. i don’t have new ones yet so maybe they will be made differant. any ideas?
