In my box of carrera shocks are a roll pin, does this roll pin need to be pressed inside the bushings for the shocks before I bolt it to the frame/rear end?

We just switched to carrera shocks a month or so ago. They cost us a little more but since QA1 bought them out they seem to be a better shock and they are chrome. The bushing needs to be pushed into the neoprene. make sure the bushing fits over the bolt on the rear end bracket. When we first started using those shocked we found out those bushings were to small. We now switch them out with different bushings.

Paulski, I had the same shock setup also. There was only one per shock, so I took a piece of 5/8" A1 round stock and drilled a1/2" hole through it and made 4 new bushings for top and bottom.
