    Loosen spring locking nuts. So the spring will drop away from the spring cap.

    Note which spring goes on first and which goes on second when taking off the springs. You need to put springs back on in the same order when you put the shock back together.

    Remove the reservoir cap end. I lock the reservoir the vise. Put a socket on the cap and tap the cap down.

    I put nuts on the schrader valve on the reservoir cap. I pull the cap out with vise grips.

    You can look into the reservoir and see the reservoir piston.

    You need to measure from the top of the reservoir to the reservoir piston. You need to know this measurement when you put the shock back together.
    Bill the measurements for your buggy are 6.5 inches for the rear shock and 4.75 inches for the front shock.

    Push the hose end reservoir cap down into the reservoir and remove the clip. Pull the hose end reservoir cap out of the reservoir.

    Push the reservoir piston out of the reservoir with a punch for a Radflo shock.
    On a Fox shock they have a threaded hole in the reservoir piston so you can screw a rod into the piston so you can move the piston .
    Radflo does not have threaded hole to do this, so use a punch to push on the piston.
