Well now...it really depends on if you are able to remove the shipping straps after installing the shocks. The rears won't be a problem...the fronts may be a different story....kinda limited amount of room in the front to get to them to cut the straps off....

There's no dumb questions, Dan! What is dumb is NOT asking questions and then screwing something up! Most of the answers you get on here are as much EXPERIENCE as KNOWLEGE! No sense in making the same mistakes someone else has! We're all here to help! (most of the time!)
Dan, I guess that I'm dumb (ebo made me that way) because I cut mine as soon as removing them from the box. I does get a little tricky installing them but it's wasn't such a problem. You have to compress them then be quick about running the bolt thru.

All in all the shock remount was the hardest part.....Apparently prior owner in putting on those monroe shocks squeezed the upper shock mount so tight and I had to beat it open for the new upper mounts to fit.....

I always use a tiny dab of anti seize what I slide the chocks on. Always one on and off nice and easy...
