Just received the 'Adjust a ride' kit from White Brothers.
Do I need a shock press to put it on or conventional tool will be enough.
Also, is there any specific feedback on this kit?

Thanks for your help.
Ciao

c4,
My experience, and may be similar to white bros, I bought the alen ness extension. Two reasons I had to take it to an indie shop:

1. The thread lock on the shock nuts were of such strength that an air wrench was needed to break it loose. I did not have an air wrench. The mechanic BROKE one of HIS socket 90 deg. offsets breaking the nuts loose.

2. A shock press is absolutely necessary, whether you buy it or rig one yourself.

It cost $75 well spent dollars, and saved me a lot of aggrevation.
I'm one to do everything myself. but this one time I let someone with better tools do it.

Did mine with a big C clamp and a vise (White Bros. 2000 FXST) You only have to compress the shock enough to get the lock clip out of the shock body. I had to grind the original shoulder down to get the lock nut off the stud.
