Stupid question, but i just disconnected the top bolt on a front shock..... So how do you get it compressed to reconnect since it definitely appears to be working lol.

I normally just compress them down by hand, get in a position where you can put some weight on it. You could always use a prybar too if needed. Stick the end of the prybar in the shock pocket and use the leverage to put pressure down till you can slip the bolt in.
