'06 Showa Lower Shock Clevis Removal

Recommended Posts

I want to replace the shock bumper but I don't want to break loose the main damper rod/stack nut.

How do you remove the lower clevis? Any tricks or problems associated with doing that?

Kinda...

the problem is the rebound circuit runs through the clevis and to remove the clevis, you end up needing to take the shock apart anyway to bleed it correctly again.

You may as well just pull the rod and piston out of the body, grind the peen and change the bumper and do a service at the same time.

^^ I agree! Go ahead and replace the bumper, bladder, and oil seal head. Top if off with fresh oil and a fresh charge of Nitrogen.
