Nice write-up, much appreciated, but use some jack stands next time. Having only floor jack(s) holding up the car while working under it is asking for disaster, even if it's 'just' removing/replacing the shocks. You can't instantly move at 32 fps squared. The car WILL if that jack moves/slips/collapses.
