Shock help!!!

K guys well i coudnt wait until next week to install some of my Fox shocks but i ran into a problem... looks like the end's of all the shocks are too small to fit into the stock locations and even the new dual stab kit i bought...

if i take out the metal sleeve it looks like it will fit.... just wondering for those of you that have installed Fox shocks on your trucks if you had to do the same... when i ordered them they didn't have diff part numbers for larger wholes.. am i going to have to go buy all new smaller diameter bolts to make them fit?

here is a pic of what im talking bout.. just the lil metal sleeve where you normally put the bolt through

You can order new sleeves for it so everything will fit...the sleeve are like 25 or 30 cents a piece...they are just a Pain-in-the-a$$ to get in and out.

Are you talking about a metal bushing inside the bearing?

As long as the bolts you use fill the whole (no slack) you should be able to just press them out. If not, find a local machine shop with bushings (or that can make you some) to fit the ID of the bearing and the OD of the bolt.

yah the bolt is exactly that size.... im thinking its ok to press them out all it should be is a polyurethane bushing..... all my other fabtech shocks dont have them in but they came with them just in case you had to install them....
