I'm very happy so far.

Install wasn't near the horror that I'd been led to believe.

Of course, using the special shock socket helped a ton.

The rears weren't even rusted up and siezed!

It has an oblong hole that fits the top of the shaft and holds it so you can turn the nut. Speeds things up alot, because I just held the nut stationary and spun the shaft.

Where did you get the special socket. I am about to do the Shock upgrade, and would like to buy or barrow one of these to get the job done faster. I am in Central Fla, so if you have some ideas where I can get this locally I would appreciate it.

I imagine it looks a little like this:



You can find them at any parts/tool store, but vise grips will work fine.

It looks exactly like that. It's a DeLisle tool. I had to buy it off a tool truck I saw sitting at a Honda dealership. None of the local parts places had one.
