Following a previous post I put my floor jack just in front of the rear wheel and lifted the bike just until the rear wheel lifted and popped off the old shocks.

The new ones were super easy to push into place and I didnt use any of the washers, ect... that were included with the new progressives.

Was I supposed to?

Thats why I'm worried... it seems like it was a little TOO easy.

Took me less than 30mins. Probobly would have been quicker if I wasn't eating at the time too.

I used the spacers....for better spacing on my chrome lowers.

You did it right. I didn't use any of that other stuff when I installed mine either. That was 6000 miles ago! No problems.

Yep, just a bit of grease. It's not something you have to do, just prevents the metal sleeve from squeaking on the mounting stud. Also keeps it from getting oxidized, so you can get 'em off easily should you ever need to.
