You need a deep 9/16 socket for the top nut, on a swivel would be great. Keep the jeep on the ground and remove the top nut first. Remove the bottom 1/2 inch nuts and bolts (2). Install in reverse order.

Rear shocks (van 150000 miles) originals still on Recently installed 2.2 Legacy Engine people sugges KYB gas shocks I have Biltiens *new) on front


Bilsteins are about the best shocks you can buy.

With those miles (150000) on the van I would have also replaced all 4 springs and all 4 shocks., It is stupid to put new shocks on the front and leave worn out shocks on the rear . - The rear shock absorbers should also be replaced with new items.
(Springs are inexpensive to replace so I am surprised you did not renew them because it should be done. The old ones will have sagged significantly by now.)

How to change shock absorbers on a mg zt


Rear shocks would be in the boot or back seat - just unbolt and replace, you will have to remove both wheels. Front shocks may need a spring compressor if the shocks are inside the road spring, DO NOT ATTEMPT FRONT SHOCKS WITHOUT A SPRING COMPRESSOR YOU WILL GET SERIOUSLY HURT!!!

How to replace the shocks on my 2002 jeep grand Cherokee??


shocks are easy my friend. make sure you have shocks in the front not struts. a strut will have a spring around the shock with a large steel plate holding the spring to the strut. first off. the car does not have to be lifted to change the rear and if you have shocks on the front as well. just simply remove the lower and upper mounting hardware then change. i can not say enough make sure you have shocks in the front and not struts. struts are a pain and can be very dangerous to replace if you dont have the correct equipment

If you have the jack in the correct location have you attempted to turn the front wheels to slightly adjust the angle of the hub relative to the shock and stabilizer bar?

Front shock replacement 1995 Plymouth Voyger


Those are the symptoms of worn shocks and struts. You should have them replaced by a mechanic. From choosing the low end not so high quality shocks/struts as the replacements, to the high quality OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) shocks/struts it should cost you around $250-$400. Let me please note that some times the shocks do not need replacing but that is at your discretion. Thanks for asking!
And don't forget! It's at your discretion leave a rating!. I always try my best at explaining my answer to your problem.

Is there a recommended way to replace the drivers side front shock on a 1999 Dodge ram 4x4 diesel


For shock removal and replacement is fairly easy -- first remove the top shock nut and then the three nuts on the tower surronding the upper shock nut - then remove the bottom through bolt and pull shock up through the top -- install in reverse order - (don't worry about the shock expanding after you get the bottom bolt back in, you can push the top of the shock down with the tower and secure it). recommend you replace both front shocks
