When I removed the old shocks supplied by CE with the front suspension there was evidence of bottoming out and there were creases in the lower shock covers made by contact with the bottom edge of the coil spring cup. Since the adjustable Viking shocks are actually larger in diameter I did not want to install and possibly damage them. I think in order to install the shocks I will have to remove the coil springs and grind off the lip of the coil spring cup. What a PITA. Has anyone else run into a similar problem?
