I had to raise the bike up onto a board to get the shock out or get the wheel to lower enuf.
Used a 2x 10 wide enough for the bike, best to tilt bike to one side slide board under then tilt to other side pull it the rest of the way under bike.
Had tried putting on center sand on to board, alone that did not go well
Seems everyone put the bolt back in dry, unlike the rear uses locktight.
I was not sure at the time used some blue.
Maybe better dry?
Remember to hold top bolt with a Allen as you loosen the nut!
