"Had to use existing bolt for lower shock mount. New bolt not compatible." posted by: on May 13, 2014

"Shocks did not come with all the parts needed for installation. Had to provide my own bushings for the shock bolts and had to shim the rear shocks to fit the shock hangers. I remember when shocks where a direct replacement instead of a custom fit." posted by: Pops on October 9, 2013 view all 2 reviews
