I put Hydro 7000 shocks on my 1981 Jeep J10 a couple months ago and it rides and handles better than it has since I acquired the truck( it still had its original shocks). The ride is firm, not bone jarring( no more bouncing). I no longer have to fight with the truck to stay on the road when I hit bumps on corners( I had a major problem with excessive body roll). I suggest that you wet the outside of the poly bushings with plain water, then they will easily slip into the shocks. Friends that helped me tried to force the bushings into the shock with a vise, I stopped them before they damaged something, stuck my finger in some water and smeared it around the outside of the bushing and it slipped into the shock easily by hand. Then I did the rest the same way.
