I ordered some new Bilstein HD shocks from TireRack for my 06 K1500. The 6500/2905 setup. Not bad, about $250 shipped. The truck only has about 50K on it so the original ones aren't bad. I just think the ride will improve with the Bilsteins. So the shocks will be here today. I plan on installing them this weekend. I was under there changing fluids the other weekend and looked over the shock placement. This actually looks like a no-brainer install. Which usually means there is a surprise waiting for me... So I was wondering if there are any gotchas I am missing. The rears look I don't need to lift the truck. Just put a small floor jack under the shock to unload it. Loosen bottom bolt then the top pair and out. Might need to compress the new shock to intall it? Or extend it to install it? The fronts I gather I need to pull the wheels. Support the control arm with a floor jack. Possibly compress the shock before trying to remove it? Any hints or things I should watch out for? I have a Chiltons/Haynes manual I haven't read yet because it looks pretty straight up. I've done plenty of shock swaps on my cars. Thanks.
