Just got my KO2's and installed my lift yesterday...


Its a 2.5 inch Rubicon Express spring lift with the monotube shocks (same as bilsteen 5100) now for the question, HOW in the world do you put a allen key on the top of the shock to tighten the nut (especially the passenger side), also what size is the allen? I have 17x8.5 fuel Anza wheels with 35x12.5x17 BFG KO2's and was wondering what pressure you guys are running, I currently have them at 32 psi..

most shock shafts have an area under the bushing where you can use a wrench to hold the shaft. Not sure about bilsteens.

These shocks don't have the "bolt" on the lower part of the bushing, And before I seen the cutting of the plastic, I ended up taking 1/4 inch piece of rubber and wrapping it around the upper part of the shaft and grabbed it with pliers and turned the nut with a wrench, ended up working out..
