jack bike up, but leave rear tire just touching the ground.
Unbolt lower shock bolts
bolt lowering block to swing arm
bolt shock to lowering block
tighten all bolts
lower bike
adjust shock preload
go for a ride

I like the stance of mine, but they aren't ideal for a great ride. I have mine installed right now with DX shocks turned all the way up. This looks good and rides decent when I ride solo, but I can't ride with my wife on the back or I'll bottom out the upper shock mounts on the 240 tire.
