^^^no problem, look at my post time.

thanks for the info, wondering how much spring tension we are talking. I have to sneak a bottle jack in to get the tension off the shock bolt in order to remove it (in addition to the swing arm) then I can let it down SLOWLY. I hate to have to pull it off with a bottle jack though?

I have a good electric impact gun and would like to stand far back behind the car or something?

I dont know how that spring might come out in case of emergency even with the suspension unloaded, should I put a compressor on it to be safe or something, what do all these guys do?
