How to fix rear shock springs on my car


the easiest way to replace the spring is to actually replace the spring and strut assembly together. most parts stores sell what they refer to as a "quick strut assembly". all you would do at that point is unbolt the old strut assembly and bolt the quick strut one on. no need to compress the spring to replace the strut etc. the process would involve removing the wheel, removing 4-5 bolts, removing the old assembly and then bolting the new one on. the complete assembly at autozone should run you about $130-140. good luck with it

2005 Trailblazer hatch will not stay up


I would simply recommend just going to an autoparts store and buying new gas shock replacements and take care of the problem. I would not mess with the old ones. I did find them at autozone.com Instead of them calling them gas shocks that actually refer to them as mighty lift/support lifts. The ones I looked up were $24.99. May depend on your model of Trailblazer, but this is just a ball park price. Hope this helps you.

Hydraulic arms for 2001 hyundai elantra hatchback


They are gas charged shocks, so if they aren't holding, they won't hold in the future. You will either have to "rig" it, or buy new/used units and replace them. It could be just one that is bad (and it is usually really random when they go out), but they only make them just strong enough to hold as a pair.

Rear shock replacement


Ummm do you have the spring compressor attached?
If not, put the bolts back in before someone gets hurt.

Those are strut style.
The proper way to remove them is to install the spring compressor, compress the springs a little, then remove the bolts. Then you will be able to remove the assembly, remove the shocks, put the new ones in, and reinstall.
With out the spring compressor, the spring can "jump out" and possibly cause serious injury. That is a 1,000+ pound spring.

This is a dangerous job if you do not have the proper equipment for compressing the spring that is around the rear shock. I do not recomend performing this job without the proper equipment. Unloading the spring without it compressed can cuase injury.

If you have the proper equipment this is how you do it.

REMOVAL - SHOCK ASSEMBLY NOTE: Access for the nuts attaching the rear shock assembly upper mount to the vehicle is through the inside of the trunk.
  1. Roll back carpeting on top of the rear shock tower to access shock mounting nuts.
  2. Remove plastic cover from the top of the shock assembly.
  3. Remove 2 nuts attaching the shock assembly upper mount/spring seat to the shock tower.
  4. Raise vehicle on jackstands or centered on a frame contact type hoist.
  5. Remove the rear wheel and tire assembly from the vehicle.
  6. Remove two fasteners holding the splash shield to the shock assembly upper mount.
  7. Remove bolt attaching shock absorber to rear knuckle
  8. Remove the shock absorber from the rear knuckle first when removing the shock absorber from vehicle by pushing down on the rear suspension.
