    Well the basics are:

    Pull the shock (depending on bike frame, maybe just the lower bolt if there is a lot of room)
    Unthread the preload adjuster so there is no preload and the spring has lots of play
    Move the circular, slotted retainer at the bottom of the spring upwards and then slide it off of the shock
    Remove the spring
    Reverse to put it back on

    Hope that helps!
    Gnar Cal!

    very cool question....if you can get shock off bike just unscrew spring (back it off till it is very very loose....then take off shock collar (that c-clip) and then pull spring off...Note sometimes you will have to take off hardware and rebound adjustment screw
    the trick is ENJOYING YOUR LIFE EACH DAY, don't waste them away wishing for better days
