Do I need to replace the front axle damper after installing new starter in my 2001 sport trac?


Hi Pete, If the bolt you refer to is part of the shock absorber you will need to replace the damaged unit. If you replace one we recommend replacing both on the same axle. If however the unit is a McPherson strut type suspension, and the bolt you refer to is that which is mounted onto the shock pad, bolting onto the shock tower it can be replaced with another. It is a special bolt which has a splined shoulder. (The spline is to lock the bolt in place while being tightened) To replace it. knock out the broken piece with a pin punch and insert the replacement. If you need to remove the shock pad from the assembly, you will need to use suspension spring compressor clamps. Hope this info is of help? Regards John

Shock Absorber replacement 2002 Explorer Sport Trac


These are just regular shocks and not struts so they should come out with just common tools. You may need to soak the fasteners in penetrating oil for a while or, use heat tget the fasteners to break loose from the corrosion.

01 ford explorer sport trac rear timing chain diagram


There is a detailed explanation in the ford workshop manual for this, and some special tools are required to get the timing right. I would not recommend doing this without the special tools. Contact your local ford dealer, they might loan you the tools and the manual for a fee.
Hope this helps, Mark
