I can’t keep my new shocks compressed! I have to put my bodyweight on them just to get them to budge and they spring up quick as fuck!

Getting the old one out was a PITA and that was fully compressed. I can’t drop it through the engine bay, it does not fit though the hole on the frame from below, and the fucking tangs on the bottom on these ones are longer than the OEM ones! So I have to get the burrs off with a bandsaw at work otherwise they won’t go down at all! But even after that gets down howwwww do I compress them to shimmy them in to begin with???

Pictures for reference.


Where was I... Ah yes. Dammit!!! :(
