i am replacing my shocks and was wondering how i can easily remove the rear and front shocks. 1. the front shocks spin win i try to remove the bolt. 2. the rear shock's bolts won't come out. i dont feel like putting it up and taking the wheels off. any ideas?

Re: shocks
To get the front shocks off we pulled the wheels off and used a vice grips to hold the shock from spinning. You might be able to do that without taking the wheel off but removing the wheels gives you more room to work with. On the rear you just need some pb blaster and a wrench. Note that the nut is welded to the mounting bracket and won't spin off no matter how much you try, you just need to focus your efforts on removing the bolt itself. Good luck!

Re: shocks
I had to grind some of the shock shaft but vice grips should work. And just take the tire off unless you are z small person
