This might help
The only schematic I know of for the Epic is in the Owners Manual. If you want the copy electronically see link below:
I just pulled my shock to check the spherical bearing (they were dry, not good).
Recommend you have:
Torque wrench as bracket is made of carbon fibre (11.3 NM).
6 point 19mm socket (more then 6 points and you will scar the Pivot Nut)
Also, it is a good idea to have Blue Lock-tight (you can see where it was originally).
A little grease for the spherical bearings.
Start on the bottom of the shock.
Rubber rings go on first, a dap of grease will help hold them in.
Then hold the washers on (you will need a lot of patience with this) and slot the shock into the carbon fibre bracket.
Slot the bolt in with a drop of fresh Blue Lock tight. Suggest waiting to torque until after the Axel bolt is installed.
Slot the Axel bolt in noting where the washers are in the schematic relative to the shock link. Again, a fresh drop of Blue Lock-Tight on the threads of the Axel.
Torque the axel and bottom shock bolt (I use a plastic bag between the socket and Pivot Nut to prevent scaring).
Set your air pressure and sag and you are off!
Hope this helps.
thank you very much for your help
