Is there a key to removing the front springs out of my vb? Iv compressed the springs and now having trouble removing the top end plate and bearing. How do i get the nut off without the whole shock spinning around?

We use stilsens to hold the shocky, then use the rattle gun to undo the nut on top. :thumbsup:

Rattle gun. Not sure I'd let stilsens anywhere near it though.

I recently done mine and used a step spanner i believe they are called its like a ring spanner but it is like a z shape at each end, then i just used a good sized flat screwdriver with a shifter on the handle in the slot on the end of the shock shaft lol.
