Yeah, I did, forget the C-clamp idea, I used two channel-locks, one on each side and it worked great on the second one. They arent on the truck and they and the lift wont be until next weekend.
Alright thanks for all your help I got one in and had to stop cuz, well I was so mad I just had to stop.
I tried it but wasn't sure how to put the c-clamp on there because the bushing kept compressing and slanting sideways but i will try again, yeah skyjacker obviously doesn't put them in for you.
this is what I'm talkin about.
There is no way to put the bushing in then put in the metal braket, because the bushing has to stretch and once it is in the shock it can not stretch. You have to put the braket in the bushing before you put it in the shock, and i was just wondering if there was any easy way to get them both in the shock becuz I have failed in doing so.
Do you know any easy ways to get the upper bushings and mounting brakets into the shock easily, (it is the rear shock where the mounting braket is wider than the bushing on each side)
thanks, i've put a lot of work into it
