Re: [DML] Re: Lowering the front end / New springs

I'm trying to find out where they go, I'm looking at the shock, but don't know where they go...I'm going to let some shocks replace it and align  the wheels, but I need to tell them what they need to do., Should I go ahead and replace the front shocks while I'm at it? I was trying to avoid the cost.

is no way you can measure accuratly the correct # of shims. You won't
save much by replacing the bolts yourself but you will save something.
Put back the shims you do find and drive right to an alignment shop
slowly and carefully. If the shocks are leaking they have to be
replaced. The old ones will give a harder ride but don't expect magic
if you replace them. Tire pressures can have a bigger effect so first
make sure you have the right pressures.
