I just remember I had to unbolt "something".
When my shocks were bad on my old '95 (and Brenda's old '96), the cars hit the bumps HARD, made a pretty loud noise. Then I put some Sensatracs on, and it fixed that, but became "floaty". Those shocks are the worst, for MN-12's anyway. Unless you like to feel like the captain of a small ship.
