Shock Absorber Gaiters

Postby pollytobias49 » Wed Apr 12, 2017 8:19 am

I am wondering if there is an easy way to replace the disintegrated rubber gaiters on the Bilstein Shock Absorbers. I have the four new gaiters ready to fit but I am a little daunted about the task if doing it the way the manual says. Any help would be appreciated.

Why how does the manual say how to do it?
And which manual.

Did them on our first MX and it was a doddle of a job, just dropped the suspension one corner at a time.
