Greetings all! Hope everyone had a great Christmas Holiday.
I was allowed some some project time (Pantera time) for the Holiday weekend so I finally got around to removing my shock spacers. I removed the first shock and compressed and removed the spring without any problems, but have spent more than 3 hours trying to pry the freakin spacer loose. I've got it to move about 1/8" using screw drivers and hammers. My shocks appear to have been painted over during restoration, would the coat of paint be enough to prohibit the spacer from sliding out? What is the clearance between the spacers and shock? Anyone had this problem?
