1. Carefully open the package using a box cutter or knife (Figure A) and ensure entire shock hardware is included and undamaged.

2. Using an 18mm socket on both sides, remove lower shock bolt on the driver's side (Figure B).

3. Using a 16mm socket (longer bolts) and a 13mm socket (shorter bolt), remove bolts from driver's side top shock mount if using a shock extension (Figure C). If removing factory shocks, simply remove two 16mm bolts holding shock pin in place.
