I've undone the track and sway. Undone the shocks. It's not going to droop anymore

Might have to undo the control arms to allow more I almost had to with my lift but my buddy had spring compressors. Are your brake lines and abs lines undone? I hope it's not hanging off those.

Is that a spring retainer?

not sure from the photo but it looks like a bump stop. depending on your lift chances are you need it.

you will be able to get an offset box end wrench on the nut from underneath the perch.

As long as my shocks are the correct length I'm assuming I won't need them... They're not bump stops, they are on the bottom perch. If my shocks allowed my Springs to reach the point where they'd come off that perch then I would need them right?

If they are on your bottom perch they are bump stops. Your top bump stops make contact with them to prevent too much travel. you can ruin a good pair of shocks by bottoming them out on either up or down stroke.

Your right.

Thing is that it's near impossible to get those suckers back on, might look into some aftermarket ones.

Those look just like the spring retainers that came with my teraflex lift. The lift came with a tool to hold the bolt and insert it into the space that the retainer bolts to.

Call Teraflex. I bet they will send you a tool. Or, ask a buddy with a Teraflex lift

Yes you do need those retainers to keep the spring on the perch.

You would think they would cover stuff like this in the instructions. Are the instructions crappy?

The instructions with the Teraflex lift are very clear. However, he is installing spacers. It sounds like he didn't install the lift himself.

Right, I didn't put in the lift, thus the confusion with those clips.

Doug from TF is sending me a tool for them. Great guys.
