Taking fox shocks off???

Hey guys, my shocks are discolored now and I would like to take them off and get them repainted. How in the world do I take them off and put them back on?

just find where it mounts and unbolt it.
if they are just bolted to the shock hoop just unbolt them from the shock hoop. they dont do any weight bearing thats all up to the leaf springs.

The rear end is a link set up, no leaf springs from what i can see.

Just jack the rear end up, put jack stands under the frame in front of the rear tires and then just unbolt them. As long as you can get the rear end up high enough you should be able to extend the coilovers to their full length and get all the froce off them so they slide rigth out.

The front just unbolt, they will be pressurized so the shaft will extend all the way out once you pull them off so you will need some muscle putting them back in. To install i reccomend standing above the shock and putting your weight on it to compress it. once you have it at the right height to fit back in to be mounted tie a rope around both ends to keep it from expanding and then slip it in and bolt it up!

I hope your wrong cause that shock hoop is welded to his frame......

There should just be some bolts going through the eye of the shock at both ends.
