As title says, i'm trying to take out my rear shocks, but I didn't realize it's nessicary to remove the rear sway bar too?
I can't seem to bend the lower arm enough to get the shock out. anyone else remove their rear shocks on the 08's yet?

Worst-case, you could undo the endlink to give more downward travel to the control arm...

Remove the end link bolt and have a second person push down on the lower control arm. It requires a lot of strength/weight so don't expect to get it out by yourself.

We didn't remove the endlink, no wonder it took a lot of weight to push down on the hub lol
