Does anyone know if taking the botton bolt out of the shocker allow the swinging arm drop far enough to take the spring off or will it still need spring compressors

Re: Rear springs-shockers

its ment to give you enough room but i had issues when i did mine and had to get compressors on aswell.

maybe a little more physical abuse would of got them out but i didnt try too hard.

the PI lowering springs i had went back in no problem
