Anyone install a Cup Kit yourself? The rear went pretty smooth but I'm struggling with the front. The shock piston seems to be extremely short. Even after completely compressing the spring, I can't get the hat on because the piston does not stick out far enough. Any Ideas?

Thanks in advance

i also had the problem, where the piston got sucked in to the shock body. it is very difficult and tricky to get this on. i agree, a wall mounted compressor would be best, and even then, you need to get a little creative. go call a friend, drive to a susp. shop or even a midas, pay them the 50 to do it for you.
