    Hi guys. I have a new set of angle cylinders and trying to bolt them up today. This may seem like a silly question to some of you, but what is the trick to extending them? They are compressed too far down and won't reach the bolt holes. Any tips/tricks most welcome. Thx!

    If the holes where the hoses connect are still plugged, remove the plugs, bolt the ram end to the mount and pull.

    That is how I attempted it but they weren't budging.

    Had to get my weight lifter wesport neighbor over here and it wasn't easy for him either but he got them extended. Thanks for responding.
    Both cylinders on and new lines and she's ready to go now. Just add snow. :)

    I've been using them on the coils for years now
    and haven't had a problem yet.
