I believe drking is refering to the the front shocks. Struts are common reference to the front shock assy, on a car. --Keno

You will have to pull the shocks apart, and just put it in the correct place. Hold upright, and keep your atm or fork oil.

Be very careful pulling out the "lock rings". If you damage them they will have to be replaced. If he fully seated the rings-I'm assuming you mean the OIL SEAL ring, try to use seomthing that will allow you to pull up ring evenly. Some of that leftover ATF wil be good for lubing the path to get it out. Not to be insulting, but this is why they make shop manuals with step by step instructions. But don't feel bad, I'm sure we aren't the only ones who ever put something back together in the wrong order.



Good Luck
