So ive looked and looked and cant find how to install rubberdown spring spacers for the air shocks. I used a spring compressor and either im dumber than i thought or theres no way to take the bottom or top cup off the spring to install the spacer. Rubberdown hasnt responded to my emails and im trying to install tomorrow. The website doesnt have instructions for the xmr spacer install.Any help is greatly appreciated

Compress spring, Gently knock "shock ring" upwards to reveal snap ring, remove snap ring, remove bottom bolt and then remove "Shock ring" & Snap ring, slide on spacer. Re-install everything in reverse --- TAKE YOUR TIME...Enjoy.

No problem. Feel free to use them.
The Clamshell Strut Compressor makes the install easy.
Only had to remove the bottom bolt.

Thanks for making such a great product.
