Default Removing Front Coil Overs

I have a Midstates Cobra with Mustang II front suspension. I need to remove the Aldan coil overs and was wondering if anyone could quickly explain the procedure. I have it unbolted, but can't quite figure out how to get it out. Specifically, do I have to remove either the upper or lower A-arms? Thanks in advance for any and all replies.

Rick

You shouldn't have to remove an LCA or UCA. Your shock should just unbolt an pull right out, just make sure you have your front end jacked up.if it seems the shock is still too tight, then screw down the spring rings some. Should be pretty easy.

Thanks Tim. I've got it up and have tightened down the rings and am able to get the coil over completely loose from the tower. However, it just seems there is no "opening" big enough to get the assembly completely out. I'm going to try to raise the arm assembly just enough to maybe make something happen.
