Starteur,

You will need to use a little force to get the shock retainer on. The spring also needs to be squashed firmly.

For the short springs you can use external spacers to fit around the shock which will give more ride height.

However you want your mini to sit about 5mm measured from the front and 5/6mm at the rear. All the shocks I have built with the fuel tube and fitted with the shorter springs have not required external spacers.

Regards,

Calvin.
