I saw several good comments about KYB gas-ajust shocks on this site so when I needed to replace mine that's what I bought. The hardware packet for each shock contains two nuts, one about half as deep as the other. And the "instructions" show both nuts going on the shock. I've never seen this before -- is this the new standard or is it just the KYB way? I'm planning on using only one like I always have before and it's never been a problem. Has anyone used both on their shocks?

Thanks,
Jim

Good one KS!

Okay, I'll put them on. I've had okay luck with front shock nut removers, only that the top of the shock eventually rounds when I get the nut about half-inch off. Maybe the top nut will chase the threads so then the bottom one will come off easily. I always end up dremeling off the nut anyway but always the optimist, I start with the shock nut removal tool.
