Replacing Rear Shocks Part 2: Shock Removal and Installation

Here's part two of the process of replacing the rear shocks. This one is not as thorough picture wise (I was in a hurry to put it back together!) but the parts not pictured should be relatively straight forward.

If anyone has the tightening torques for the various nuts and bolts of this DIY please let me know what they are so I can include them. I just winged it but I'd feel more comfortable doing it if I knew what to torque everything to.

As I've said before, I am not a mechanic nor an expert please follow these procedures at your own risk. If you have any feedback I'd love to hear it.
