When I did mine to remove I used an appropriate sized socket - in my case from a 1/4" drive set, an over sized washer to protect the face of the shock, a vice and a hammer.

To insert either use a vice or better, nut, bolt and a couple of washers.

Have to admit I usually resort to the hammer and vice for most jobs (headset etc) but thought I'd try a proper tool this time.

Always there as as a last resort though... :-)

I got my last lot out with a woodworking vice, a rag and a pair of molegrips :shock:

Used Easy Outs to get mine out with a vice. Very easy indeed but have no idea where they are.
