Great care must be used when removing ends from shock shafts. Any scratches, blemishes or marks on the shaft of a shock can cause damage to the seals and lead to costly shock damage.
We have found this set of vice grips to be perfectly suited to holding the shock shaft for removing the shaft end.
This kit also includes a small amount of Loctite to re-install the shock end to the shaft.
It may be necessary to heat the mount up with a torch or a heat gun in order to loosen it on the shaft for removal. Do not apply heat to the Shockbody.
