No pics.... it wasn't bad at all... I sprayed the exhaust side down with pb blaster, let it sit for like 10 minutes.. was able to gain access through the wheel opening/ inner fender on that side... hardest part was i didn't have a crows foot, so just had to use a 9/16 wrench and 5/8 wrench to get tube off.. short strokes and arm is a little roughed up today but I am use to the short stroke part anyway!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I will keep yall informed on the mileage deal... hope it goes up for sure!
