No quick cuts ,this is nightmare of a job trust me,you will need spring clamps as well,the top mounting rubbers are behind the plate that holds the top of the spring in ,their are three nuts too undo and the they corrode like crazy,you end up cutting them off but trying to fit new captulated bolts .Unless you a mechanic with the tools at hand take it to a garage

Replacement of front struts and rear shocks on 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan


replacement strut inserts can be got from most suspension shops along with rear shockies.
If you are not familiar and don't have the tools have a suspension shop do the job as it will be done inside 4 hours.

2005 jeep wrangler replaced factory shocks 100,000


for this to happen there is misalignment of the shocky mount hole and the pin that it is mounted to. Check that there is a large washer over the rubber bush before the nut as if this is missing there is nothing to position the shocky mount.

Rear shocks make noise (sounds like diseal engine) when they are lifting.


best way to check shock absorbers i have found is to push down on each corner of car , very quickly but with most of your weight , let car spring back into position , if car rises fast and dosn't bounce up and down more than once or twice your shockies are o.k , but if car keeps bouncing 3 or more time's they are no good and will need to be replaced .

sometimes the spring that surrounds shockie has worn rubbers these can emit noise also ,
mainly sqeaking but if either shockie or spring is able to hit car body due to perished rubbers then knocking noise will occur.
check also that you dont have a cracked spring , i have seen this also , remove tire and visually inspect.

hope this helps .. good luck

How replace the rear shocks on mercedes 420 sel


You will need to remove the rear seats to access the hole just above the shock. Remove the bottom seat cushion first, then find the small bolts that hold the upper seat to the frame. Once removed, you will see access to the top of the shocks (might have a plastic covering the hole).

1995 Jag XJ6 Rear Issues...need to fix ASAP.


My 1994 Vanden Plas makes the same noise. I know I need rear shocks. You do also!! Have the rear shocks replaced. Bilstein part number B46 1858 or Koni part  number 30 1377. Actually the Bilstein is the better shock and less expensive.
