Hello anyone there
Expert:  P.J. replied 6 months ago.

Do you still need help with this? Which series shock are you trying to install?

Expert:  P.J. replied 6 months ago.

As long as you aren't using a shock with a remote reservoir you should re-use all the stock bolts and washers.

No parts added and no parts removed.

I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance. Also, please leave a positive rating for my service today. Thanks, P.J.
