Rear shock absorber installation
As usual my search for rear suspension parts was very easy and part matched perfect. The only issue was installation instructions provided online, the gentleman aha owes removal and reinstall of same part. The problem I've scene with the videos they don't put new part on, I went to another site to find out that you had to reuse the top end plate from the old shock. This was not mentioned in the videos that A1 showed. I have scene this before on A1 installation videos they always reinstall good parts where the customer is not,so I always have to check another site to see if your video is not showing a Vidal step for reinstall.
