Hi, all,
I know I've been out of the site for a long time but the time has come. I've had all the equipment sitting on my garage for over 6 months.....i just never had the time to install it.

I need your help with replacing the Front Shocks. I'm lifting it and I'm replacing the front shocks now with Rancho RS99214.
It's a Isuzu Rodeo '98
I have the truck on jack stands and the current shocks are totally uncompressed. Removing it should be easy.

My question is:
The new shock are compressed.
Do I uncompress it before installing it?
if so how?
Do I mount the bottom bolts then lift the wheel base to proper length?

I'm fairly new on all of this so any help will be appriciated!

Yeah, there's no easy way around brute force! I tried clipping the plastic retainers and aiming for the top lug, and that worked mostly. :)
