Yeah, I've seen some tight fits on the nub in the knuckle... lol. Seriously though. We had to sand the paint off of Chris's Ksports to get them to fit in the knuckle if I recall correctly. It may have been Shawn's suspension though. I just remember getting out butts kicked. I'll text ya tomorrow and let ya know what the plan is!

This may be weird idea, but what about putting something that expands inside the knuckle opening? A clamp that can be opened as a way to pry the knuckle wider? I can't think of anything specific.

Jorgen's dad figured it out in like... 5 seconds. It was pretty embarrassing. Apparently there was a flange on the rear of the shock that wasn't lining up in a groove right, and we couldn't see it because it was like 10:30 at night when we were trying to get them installed lol. And I just realized I totally forgot to text you. Oops... next time. Buuuut.... Here's some pictures with the coilovers installed!

Finally off the jackstands

That little flange tricked me too when I did my suspension. When you get that thing moving, I'll buy you a beer.

All's well that ends well.

Looks like we may be getting it going today, if we can figure out the fuel issues! Wanna come down and take a look tonight? I think that me, jorgen, jorgen's dad, and kris will all be there.
