then loosen the nuts to uncompress the springs, as soon as the topmount gets close to the body of the shock push it down and rotate it to engage the 2 keyed flats, once you seat it and engage the flats you will only be able to rotate it slightly. then loosen the nuts to release tension on the springs. wa-laa (as the french would say).

next, install the 8mm by 1.00 thread pitch bolt in the air line hole and turn the shock upside down. remove the gray plastic guide ring and (you can grab it with pliers), fill with 10.5 ounces of atf.

next install the guide ring, then tape the bottom of the shock near the lower eye where the crimp is to prevent damage to the seal. then grease the inside of the seal and wet the outside with atf and push in into place. next install the steel seal seat and tap it down, then the circlip.
