Ok, the rear suspension is now done!
On to the front! Howard starts by removing the two bolts that hold the upper mount in place.
The front suspension install is a little more involved because you must first break loose the upper control arm ball joint and allow the knuckle to tilt back. Then you can loosen the pinch bolts that hold the front shock in place to the fork that bolts to the lower control arm.
The stock upper mount must also be modified with the KW adaptor spacer. We pressed it in with a vice.
Our new KW Variant III shock is ready to be installed. Like the rear, the front shock's body is much shorter than the Koni Yellow to allow lowering up to 2″ while keeping a good amount of bump travel.
