      Hey guys,

      This is my newest video that will show you how to change out front shocks. Hopefully this helps people with changing their shocks!

      Nice video, clear and concise. But you might want to add some disclaimers up front such as "Be sure to chock and block your tires before beginning work, and be sure to wear appropriate safety equipment such as safety glasses, etc..." And you might mention jack points.
      I've done instructional videos and its important to add your CYA disclaimers at the start.
      Good Job!

      That looks way easier then I thought it would be. I may actually give this a shot to save me some $$.

      I just tighten the bolt, they snap off real fast...

      Or, use a cutting torch.
