Also, you do not have to remove the lower shock stud in the arm. Just spray your favorite penetrating oil on the bushing, loosen the nut in the trunk and move around the shock a bit. It will slip off the bolt, the bolt stays in place.
Are you saying that the lower shock mount will slide over the nut at the bottom, leaving the rubber bushing on the bolt?
It's not supposed to do that, IMHO.
I think you would have to ruin the bushing of the new shock to get it on, if I'm reading you correctly...
At least it didn't hit the floor when you put it on a lift...
