Default Removing shackle bolts

I have a 2003 DS & wanting to put longer shackles on. Do I have to remove back body to get top bolts out? The head is facing the bag well! I've thought about removing the black plastic & drilling a hole for bolt head to go through. Any thoughts?

I did this the other day on mine and lifted the body enough to get the bolts out but is somewhat of a pain. On my friends DS someone had drilled some 3/4" holes beneath the bag well cover. It is not seen and is simple to remove bolts if you ever need to do it again. I will drill holes in mine before I go to the trouble to lift the body again. I replaced all the plastic fasteners on mine because it ruined most of them pulling the bag well cover. I got a package of 15 fasteners at AutoZone for a reasonable price.

Just thinking about it. I think I would use cut off wheel and cut the bolt. Then put new bolts in the other way if the would be possible.

ctd, once you drill the 2" holes in the body, do you plug the holes then that you drilled?

no ... that's the cool thing about it , the bag well covers it





note : you cut so the bag well does cover it, about 1/2" from edge

Turns out after I drilled 3/4 holes, I'm not going to have to extend the shackles! The rear seat kit didn't seem to effect the ride height.
