Step 10: Place the seal bullet over the end of the shock
shaft, this will not only protect the threads, but it will create
a smooth surface for the seal head to slide over.
Step 11: Install the collar, bumper, shock body cap, and
Step 12: Install the valve stack. Slide the shims and valve
around until they line up, do not force them! *Do not install the valve bushing yet. The valve bushing creates
a seal around the valve, but when filing the shock body with oil,
the oil needs to flow around the valve to get as much air out as possible. We will install the valve bushing right before final assembly.
Step 13: Apply a generous amount of thread locker to the shaft threads.
Step 14: Thread and torque the shaft nut to 35 to 50 foot pounds
Wipe off any excess thread locker.
Step 15: After you torque the shaft nut, use a punch and hammer to seal the threads.
