Back shocks on my 95 Villager will need to be replaced, probably in the spring since I don't have an indoor work space. It is pretty straight forward but the installation requires the vehicle to be in an unladen condition with tires on the ground. I know what an unladen condition is but do they mean the whole weight of the vehicle should be on the ground or just the tires barely touching the ground? I am guessing the whole weight of the vehicle should be on the tires but thought I'd check. Thanks.
