Tools required – socket set
Installation Time - Approximately 20 mins depending on the tools available and work space.
Difficulty – Basic mechanical knowledge required
N.B - If you are running aftermarket shocks, Please check clearances to avoid contact. In the case of larger shocks you can simply bend the shield slightly to create the clearance needed to avoid damage to the shock. I cannot be held responsible for these issues if the installer does not address this.
If the shield is bent excessively or you have an excessive amount of droop (achieved by too long shocks, bending the factory droop steps to gain more droop or poorly designed UCA's which don't limit droop correctly) the shield can contact the knuckle on full droop and, worst case scenario, damage the ABS line. If you suspect this is the case for your vehicle the shields can be modified using this template to gain more clearance at the hub. The design of the shield has been adjusted slightly to accommodate for this.
