    Older Epic Shock Link Removal

    I have inhersited a 2003 Epic. I want to remove the rear shock to replace the seals, but I cant get the bolt in the shock link out. I found the owners manual online and it shows a circlip, but I dont see any circlip on my bike. Any ideas?
    Thanks

    I got it out. It was siezed to the bearings. I sprayed some Liquid Wrench on it and let is soak for a few minutes, then got a hammer and a hockey puck and knocked it out.There is no Circlip holding it in, it just slid out.
