Well so far my install has not turned out to good. I was figuring it would take me a couple of hours to install all four shocks. But because of Edelbrock I ran into a slight problem.

On my old KYB shocks the top mount or "Dog Bone" or mounting tabs were sloted. The IAS shocks were not. This would not let me line up the holes on the shocks to the holes on the shock tower caps. I made a call to Tech Support and they said: Oh, we ran into this problem a few times. You have to slot them yourself.
Well after going thru a box of dremel cutoff wheels I finally got one done. (I didn't have any of the heavy duty wheels or it would have been faster.)

So just a warning to anyone who decides on getting them.

When I finish all four's I will post pics and tell you how they feel.
