Spray WD-40 on the post on the front shocks. For the loop ends put some grease on them and they'll slide on easier.

I want to hear how it improves the ride of your truck.

Install should be straight forward, WD-40 would be helpful

once you cut the band on the shock it will fully extend. I used a bottle jack to compress the shock into the lower mount.
