Wife finally shamed me into replacing the front shocks on the GT. Got the regular Monroes at Auto Zone. Took more time taking the old shocks off than I thought. Sprayed the bolts with WD40 and every type of penetrating oil I hadover two days with no luck. Tried heating the bolts at the base which made me kinda nervous that close to the gas line. Finally gave up and put the super wrench on them and snapped them in two. Pounded out the two parts of the bolt and popped the old shock out. I swear, from the looks of them, they must have been originals. Putting the new shocks in were lots of fun. Trying to compress the shock by hand while inserting it into postition took a cople of tries but finally made it . Bolted everything in place and took a drive . It now feels like a sports car instead of a sports cow. Now I will be doing the backs next week and I want to confirm that the suspension has to be lifted so that the springs don't fall out. Is it OK to raise it in place on the differential or should I put the jack under the spring on each side as I change the shocks?
