From the front or the back? Front, they're under the hood right above the tire wall. Back, up inside. You can acess it by taking your tire off.

Front shocks


Now we have a problem here, either you didn't give the right model vehicle when you posted or you have one heck of a mixed up dodge durango :P Durangos share frames and suspension with dodge rams and both don't have shock towers per say. They have one bolt holding them to the lower control arm and a frame mount with just one very accessible bolt to hold the shock in place. Usually 3 bolts and a shock tower is only on MacPherson struts usually seen on smaller cars and smaller SUVs. And in any case if you do have a MacPherson type shock and shock tower, you DO need to remove the 3 bolts on the shock tower AND remove the bolts at the spindle to remove the whole assembly (shock, spring and top plate) to change the shocks. And also i must warn you that it is really really really NOT safe to just unscrew the shock bolt that hold it in place in the top plate, as the coil spring will be under pressure even without the weight of the car and will spring out pretty darn fast and you might break or cut off a finger or an arm. And NO i'm not joking... You need a special tool called a coil spring compressor to safely remove and reinstall the coil spring when changing the shock absorber on those models. Hope this helps a bit, if not, just write back with more detail and correct make, model and country of origin and i'll do all i can to help. :) Cheers!

How do I chnage the front and rear shocks in a 2001 4.0


The shocks in the rear just unbolt top and bottom, disconnect the air line and replace them.

Struts are used in the front. You'll need to remove them and then have a spring compressor to change the struts. An alignment check is recommended after the struts are replaced.

How to cange front shocks.?


Raise and support the car safely and remove the front wheels. Undo the clip holding the brake line to the strut. Loosen the bolts holding the strut to the steering knuckle. Before removing them, remove the strut mount tower bolts under the hood. Then remove the other bolts, the entire strut assembly will slide out. You can either install a complete new strut and spring assembly (more expensive), or you can use a coil spring compressor to remove the spring from the old strut and install it on a new strut (less expensive but a lot more work, and you must have access to a spring compressor). Make sure when installing the spring that it is aligned correctly on the new strut. Also, you should replace the strut mounts with new ones. Be aware that a compressed spring is very dangerous, so be sure to follow the instructions for the spring compressor. Re-install the strut assembly. Make sure that the knuckle bolts and strut mount bolts are torqued to spec.

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

ONE REAR AIR SHOCK IS LEAKING IN MY 2002 PONTIAC BONNEVILLE


you could replace the one shock but do you know why it is leaking oil? Typically unless there was something traumatic to happen to one of the rear shocks, then if one is going you can almost be the other one will go soon. I ended up having too many problems with the air ride suspensions. If you haven't yet, look into conversion kits as something to consider for down the road if nothing else. www.strutmasters.com has a great kit that is made in America and comes with a lifetime warranty. They have a good reputation and track record and can help you save some money and find the permanent solution if anything else goes wrong.
