Rear shock help!
I've just had my Marin Alpine trail upgraded well, but found that the rear shock needs replacing. I like to do things as cheaply as possible so have bought a replacement 165mm manitou rear shock off e -bay but no-one seems to know how to get the old one out and then replace it!! I think I need a bushing tool or something but could anyone elighten me how this works? What other equipment do I need? I do also have a Marin Shoreline trail frame (which turned out to be the wrong size shock) but I could take some bits off that I think!
Any advice would be really appreciated.
