I'm doing this on a mates bike. The lower shock mount assembly was really tight in the swingarm to the extent that I had to remove the bolt on the mount and slowly cycle the swingarm to get it to budge and then managed to get it free. Removed shock, replaced bushings and hats now I obviously can't get the sodding thing back in. It's so tight a fit that I can't even put it in at a slant and then wiggle it in from there.
Anyone got any top tips before it goes off to the shop to be sorted.
