    It is not rocket science. If it was then we would have instructions. How do I remove the ball joint end of the hood shocks. I do need help with that part. Holding up the hood is no prob. thanks for your help.

If it were mine, I would lay it up in the driveway
for a 3 weeks or more & go thru the entire vehicle,
replacing alot,all fluids,spark plugs,O2 sensors,
check ball joints,replace shocks etc,remove &
check,replace or at least grease the drive shafts joints,
got transfer case & differential fluids to do,the entire

I would do that if it had 30,000 miles on it

You got no history & are on the edge of possible
break down, when you have 8" of snow on the ground
& a doctors appointment

I have a 2004 Jetta with 90,000+ miles on it. I have been told I need new shocks and struts by my mechanic. How do I know for sure that I need one or both without getting a second opinion? Is...

90,000 miles is not an uncommon mileage to replace the struts and shocks. If the shocks are leaking oil, or the car doesn't ride well, that is a good sign of needing replaced. You can also push down on the front or rearend, if it bounces up and down more than once, that would be another sign that it's time to replace them.

Steering and real bad vibration in front end

That is known as "the death wobble" for very obvious reasons. You need to install steering dampeners . They look like shocks and they mount between the drag link and the frame. They will cure the problem. Don't delay putting them on your Jeep. Hope this helps.

Jeep front end shakes badly when driving down the highway at speeds of 45 miles an hour to 55 miles an hour. The whole front end, tires shift from side to side, almost coming out from under the front end...

Bent rods....Okay...first thing...did you hit anything or or run over anything? Second, did you go off-roading....

It could be a few things....some easy and some expensive...but need to know what you have done with the Jeep first.

2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Special Edition

Probably have bad hood struts/shocks that hold it up. These can be obtained at the usual discount parts stores(Kragen,Autozone, Checker,etc) Usually just pop off on one end of a ball mount and unbolt the other after you have propped up hood. These shocks go bad from time or fluid leaks.

These are quite simple. The generally fasten with clips both at top and bottom. Replacements are readily available at general auto stores like O'reilly or Checker.

Have someone help, hold up the hood or prop with a sturdy stick. Unclip both top and bottome slip old shock off and slide new one in. Do for both sides.

Let me know if there are further complications that I'm not considering, but usually this is quite simple. I've also found at some stores like Checker, if you as for some help with these things, the nice man will come out and give you a hand.

How to remove front shocks

first lift the car and put jack stands on the frame just behind where the lower control arms attach. Then go under the hood with a deep well socket and an extension or two and loosen the top bolts. Then take off the front tires and there will be two bolts on the bottom of the shock you have to hold the nuts under side of the axle. I think all the tools for the shocks are 13mm iirc from the last time i did mine
