  4. Disconnect the lower end of the shock absorber from the mounting stud.
  5. Remove the shock absorber upper end retaining nut and washer.
  6. Remove the shock absorber from the vehicle.
To install:

Dear Sir, How do you change an 87 mitsubishi mighty max front shocks without any compression equipment? Please email me at brad8141@hotmail.com. Is there a book with instructions regarding this...


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Support the vehicle safely on jackstands. Support it at a height which will allow sufficient room to reach the upper shock absorber mount.
  2. Remove the wheel.
  3. Remove the upper shock nut, washer and bushing.
  4. Remove the lower mounting bolt(s) and remove the shock from the vehicle.
  5. Install the shock absorber in the vehicle and loosely tighten the upper shock absorber nut. Make sure the install the bushings and washers before installing the upper nut.
  6. For 4WD vehicles, install the shock absorber so that the white paint mark at the lower side of the shock absorber faces the outer side of the vehicle. Install the lower shock absorber bolt(s). On 1992-95 Montero torsion bar suspensions, tighten the single lower mounting bolt and nut to 65-76 ft. lbs. (88-103 Nm). On all other vehicles (whether torsion bar or coil spring suspensions), the two lower shock absorber mounting bolts should be tightened only to 7-10 ft. lbs. (9-14 Nm). Fig. 1: Install the shock absorber so that the white mark faces toward the outside of the vehicle - 4WD vehicles, except 1992-95 Monteros 86668006.gif
    Fig. 2: Install the bushings, washers and nuts in the order shown - except 1992-95 Monteros 86668007.gif

  7. On 1992-95 Monteros, tighten the shock absorber installation nut so that the dimensions shown in the illustration ( A and B) are at the standard values. These standard values are: A - 0.04-0.08 in. (1-2mm), B - 0.06-0.10 in. (1.5-2.5mm). WARNING
    When tightening the nut, be careful not to bend the stud pin of the washer assembly.
  8. On all other vehicles, once the lower mounting bolt(s) are tightened, tighten the upper shock absorber mounting nut all the way to the end of the thread on the shock absorber stud, then tighten the locking nut to 9-13 ft. lbs. (12-18 Nm).
  9. Install the wheel.
  10. Lower the vehicle to the ground. Fig. 3: When installing the upper shock nuts on 1992-95 Monteros, make sure measurement A is 0.04-0.08 in. (1-2mm) 86668008.gif
    Fig. 4: When installing the upper shock assembly, make sure its components are positioned as shown - 1992-95 Monteros 86668009.gif

On the 2000 jaguar s-type, what is, Cats system


Cats was a optional extra from the factory. It is adaptive damping. It basicialy softens or stiffens the shock absorbers to your driving style.

It may seem that one of your shock absorbers has developed a internal pressure fault. A local garage with a code reader can tell you wich shock absorber to check. Would be worth checking the electrical connectors that plug into the top of the shock absorber to make sure they are not damaged.

Look's like you may need a new shock absorber

Can i replace my gas adjust with coil spings on my 94 volvo 960, they want $300.00 each plus $200 labor, there has to be a cheaper way, please help


If you have the self-leveling Nivomat rear suspension system, you can replace your Nivomat shock absorbers with standard shock absorbers. You also have to replace the coil springs with standard coil springs. Please note that a combination of standard springs and Nivomat shock absorbers, or Nivomat compatible springs and standard shock absorbers, will not work.

If it is just the cost of springs that you are concerned about, try purchasing your springs elsewhere, and having your local mechanic install them. Two good sources online are; usautoparts.net and autopartswarehouse.com . You can find Nivomat compatible coil springs for less than $120 per pair.
