I think I have another thread documenting where I'm stuck. It was definitely easy to reinstall the main lift cylinders, went faster than removing them.

I'm stuck at reinstalling the gas shock on the passenger side. It cannot be compressed by hand and is ~1/2" too long when the top is fully extended. Someone that performed the same repair commented that it took force to reinstall the gas shock, so I have a big F clamp to try when I have a free weekend or waiting till someone else attempts it and finds a trick to reinstall the damn gas shock!

No pics unfortunately. The pdfs have pics that are sufficient.
