You will possibly need an extra set of hands.
Disconnect the lower A, use a long pry bar to push it down, push the axel out of the way and you should have plenty of room.

stick a long screwdriver or 3/8 extension through the eyelet. hold the fitting coming out of the shock or just grab the shock good to prevent it from turning and just give it a quick jolt on the extension..it will turn very easily, since theres no rubber isolator pads in the coilovers.. just place the coilover on the grass and do it..no real muscle needed when your looking at the FOX logo on top the eyelet should be 90 degrees out....

OK OK, I guess the UCA is getting dropped out. It look easier to do that but I went by the OME install in the tech pages. There is no way the Fox is going in like the OME.

Thanks

I am confused, the bottom doesn't line up, or you can't get the shock into position? If it won't line up, you could, as suggested, slide in a long screw driver and give it a twist.

It looks to line up. My other set of hands bailed and I am doing it myself. These are hard to handle while pushing the UCA down aswell. So I just cant get them into position. I quit for the night and hope for some assistance tomorrow evening.

Yeah, it is hard to line up by yourself. How i got the OME heavies in there was, i put my back against the fender, pushed down on the UCA, used a long flathead screwdriver to lever the lower end of the coilover into the lower bolt hole.
