I need to send my rear shocks back to Bilstein for remanufacturing. I am confident I can get them out. It's a 2-week turnaround with shipping from ME to CA, though and I'd prefer not to have my car sit on jack stands that long.
Can I lower it down to rest on the springs with the shocks out or will I damage something?
Now that I think about it... it might be tough to get the wheels back on without the shocks holding the rear end up. And if I can... then it will be tough to raise the car later to reinstall with the the weight of the tires wanting to pull everything down again...
I guess the better question is...
Is it bad to leave a car on Jack stands for 2 weeks?

Thanks.=========================================== ==============
