4. From inside the vehicle, remove the cover over the spare tire.

5. Remove the tie-down bracket and spare tire strap anchor, and pull the carpeting up to gain access to the shock absorber top mounting nuts. (See Figure 3)

6. If you don't mind making a tear in the carpeting (it won't show when the spare tire cover is in place), you can pull the carpeting back without removing the tie-down or anchor. (See Figure 4)

7. Remove the 3 nuts securing the shock and maneuver the assembly out of the vehicle.

Shock Absorber Installation:
BACK TO TABLE OF CONTENTS

1. Install the mounting Bolt/Stud into the lower shock mount on the lower suspension arm. (See Figure 5)

2. Assemble the top mount onto the shock as shown in the following diagram. (See Diagram A and Figure 6) Make sure that the axis of the "Thru-Bolt" (part # B) is in line with the longer part of the top mount.

  • A. Koni Shock
  • B. 3/4" x 2-2/3" Bolt with Nut
  • C. Shock "U" Bracket
  • D. Poly Bushing
  • E. Top Mount
  • F. 7/16" x 2-1/2" bolt with washer and nut

3. Examine the orientation of the stud mounting pattern by looking up inside the shock tower. (See Figure 7)

4. Turn the top part of the shock to align the stud orientation to the mounting pattern as seen in step # 3 above (align the bottom mount to be parallel to the lower mounting stud). Collapse the shock to it's shortest length and maneuver the unit into position over the lower mounting stud. This will be a "challenge," but it will fit into place. (See Figures 8 & 9)

5. Install nut and leave loose, for now. Extend the top part of the shock upward until the studs come through the mounting holes. (Note: It might help to have an assistant for this step, who can adjust the top mount orientation as you extend the shock.) (See Figures 10 & 11)

7. Tighten the nut on the through bolt securing the top mount to the top mounting eye of the shock. You will need 2 each 1 1/8 inch wrenches. (See Figure 13)
