you can do this without denting or damaging them, they can totally be reused. How do you think I went from stock to 850's to 850's plus spacers to 850j's to Slee 4" Wes? in fact I think I sold you those shocks..
oh.. don't worry. I couldn't get one loose because I was tightening it when I went back to put the spacers on the front.
do you want to see what a square upper ome shock looks like
See you on the trail
