Shipping Shocks.....

May seem like a dumb question lol but what is the best way to pack air shocks to ship them? I'm going with 944's so I'm going to sell my factory shocks from my 2013 RGU. I do know they have oil in them so what do I need to do to keep it from running out?

When I shipped mine to TracyB I purchased a couple of brass caps to thread onto the air line fittings from Home Depot wrapped them in foam

Just install the air hoses back on them, you don't need caps & use the box from your new shocks. That's what I did with my new Works. If they don't fit, surely you could find one or cut a bigger box down.
