    Got a welder?

    I failed to read the one guy who wrote a review and ended up with the same bizarre lower bolt setup. Absolutely no way to tighten the damn nuts because the bolts spin. I'm ashamed to admit that I spent another 2 hours removing the shocks and welding the bolt heads so that they wouldn't spin when the nuts were installed. I sold shocks for over 10 years and I've never seen anything like it. Hello Gabriel???

    Pros: Handle great

    Cons: You'll never get them installed.

    Mounting bolts make them impossible to install. Badly designed.

    I have used Gabriel shocks for years and never had a problem until now. The original shock came with squared head (4 sided) bolts on the bottom mount which locked the bolt into place so you could tighten them by tightening the nuts only. The new shocks had regular bolts which were able to spin freely when trying to tighten the nuts. A wrench or socket will not fit in the mounting bracket to keep pressure on the bolt while you tighten the nuts. I assume the bolts were supposed to be welded into place but they weren't. I suppose I could hire a welder to weld them into place so they won't spin but if they were made correctly the first time it wouldn't be a problem. I assume they began using regular bolts to save a few cents on each shock but they're simply unusable. I was not upset or angry when I left this review. I just want future buyers to be aware of this. If you have a welding machine, it shouldn't be an issue.

    Pros: Until now I have always been happy with Gabriel shocks design and quality.

    Cons: Design flaw in the mounting bolts.
