Awesome instruction as always. Thought the top bolt would be issue glad I watched.

Richard Oakley says:

You should have turned the lower bolt around and installed the nut from behind for the next time the shock is serviced. The nut clearance looks like that one-hundred-eighty degree switch will work better for the future.
