Default How to remove rear shock?

Noob question: How do I remove the rear shock from its lower mounting position? I have removed the screw that goes thru but the shock won't budge.

All you need is the right amount of force. Use a flat screwdriver and bend carefully upwards.

Thanks. I thought that it should just pop right out but wanted to be sure. Will try again with more force when I get back from work.

Maintenance. Front shocks look like have no oil so while rebuilding I thought of checking the rear ones as well.

Yes. The first one was stuck pretty good. The other one came off easily. They are all cleaned and refilled with new oil now.

Tools needed:
A good strong string
Step ladder
Broom stick
Naked pictures of Bea Arthur
Flat tip screw driver
Acme anvil
Trailing arm/stuck shock

Instructions:
Set up the step ladder, position the anvil atop the broom stick and atop the ladder. Then tie the string to the broom stick. Stand back and give the string a good tug. If positioned right the anvil should fall. Now mark the spot on the floor, if the anvil has not done it for you. Now set the anvil back atop the broom stick atop the ladder as you did before. Now position the trailing arm with the stuck shock on your mark with the flat tip driver in the pocket of the trailing arm, under the shock end. Back up pull the string and Whaaa Laa
