    Okay so I decided to put the factory exhaust back on and in order to get at my exhaust in the tunnel and to access the gaskets I had to drop the track. Little did I know how hard it would be to align everything. I thought it would be easier if I just took out the rear shock , so I did that and now I'm struggling to put that shock back in. This skid is installed and I was really hoping that I wouldn't have to take out the skid to install that shock. Does anybody have any advice to for me

    take off the 2 rods that run below/beside the shock and install it. then take a ratchet strap and pull beside the shock until the rod bolts line back up. bit of a pita but it can be done.
