So I had my skid frame out to have the shocks rebuilt, replace a broken weld on an arm, replace the rails with the front shock mount had screwed up, and repaint the other suspension components so that it looks pretty again
Long story short, due to a cluster **** getting my shocks rebuilt and spacers put in the front (I mailed 6 shocks and received 5 back and had to buy two new shocks since I couldn't get just one for less than 2 ) I'm not confident that the guy who put the spacers in the front shocks (of which one went missing) didn't put the spacer in the rear shock I sent out too.
So here are my questions:
1) I've got the skid partially in, but I forgot to grind the rivets (drilled the two new holes already). I've noticed that the front bolt holes are like 4 inches in front of their holes at the moment. I'm used to skids being a pain in the *** to install though, so this itself isn't alarming. Should I be alarmed? Is there a hint to install the skid easily (for example, removing the springs? Wait a minute...the shocks are air shocks... :P)
2) What is the center to center distance of the rear shock in the skid frame?
