Advise on steps to replacing front shocks 1967 convertible
I’m hoping for some guidance on replacing front shocks. After 20 yrs of searching and waiting finally found and uper 67 conv triple black, fairly original.
I’m no mechanic but enjoy learning and trying but I was stumped today when I unbolted the top and bottom of the front DS shock and it didn’t just slide out so I could just slide the new KYM gas-a-just right back in. Lol dumb me. I’d spend hours searching YouTube for this exact procedure and figured it would be a simple job.
Question 1- do I have to take off wheel hub and remove spring to do this?
Question 2- if I’m going that far should I replace coils/ springs at same time
Question 2a - how do you know if a spring is due to be changed?
Thanks in advance for any help!
Btw. 1st time caller 👍
