honda durability.

I'm trying to open up my subframe a bit so I stick this bigger shock in. I don't have to move it much, maybe 1/2inch-1inch. I've modified a scissor jack to fit but that frame is a sturdy . Anyone have a hydraulic splitter I could borrow for like 10 minutes? Or anyone use any other methods?

You could try and dent the tubing on either side of the shock but I have never heard of anyone needing to bend the frame to fit a bigger shock.
Is your rearend bent?

What kind of shock is that? You might want to go get the frame reinforced so it dose not chopper out.
