Default Changing Shocks

How many men does it take to change out a set of rear shocks on a C6Z?

Answer: 7 and one dog.

Every other Thursday the club gets together for a "Wax & Chat" session at my place, usually, over coffee, donuts, with a liberal dose of bullshit, and we also clay bar a car too.

This day after the clay bar session, we changed out the rear shocks on the Z. As you can see, one guy working, 6 + Daisy supervising.

The front shocks are kind of a PITA. I just put Bilsteins on my ride.

Nice ideas are shared here i also agree with that it is quite possible for the struts/shocks to fail without visible fluid leakage. I also had new pair of Avon Storm St's Saturday, anyone use or used them?
