Is there a secret method of getting to the top of the shock bolt

    when you have air suspension there is only 1/2 '' above the nut and no place to hold the wrench on top of the stud to keep it from moving.
    I am thinking of hole sawing behind the seat so I can impact the rust thing off
    another Idea will prove successful after I get back from lowes with a long saws all blade for metal. I think I can just cut the whole thing off and it will drop out hmmm
    Is there another tool or was this designed poorly

Can i replace rear air suspension with shocks on 2000 town car


I have learned from experience. I replaced the air bag suspension ($75) on my 2000 Town Car and then learned that I had a problem with the compressor. Then decided to replace system with coil springs. Went on ebay and got a conversion kit (Air Ditcher) that included the shocks ($123) with free shipping. My mechanic replace the bags with the coils for $40. He said that with the shock replacement it would be $120 because the top of the rear shocks were hard to get to. So the whole job should have cost $163. No more worries!

How do I replace the rear shocks on my 97 Lincoln Town Car


Is there a spring on the outside of the shock???? If so then it is really a strut and you will have to take it to a qualified service dealer. If no spring, it is pretty easy to do. Jack up the car, put jack stands under the rear axle, remove the nut on the bottom of shock and the bolts on the top and slide the shock out. Install the top of the shock first (if a gas shock) when you cut the wire tie that is holding the shock compressed, you have to line it up with the bottom bolt as it is coming down.

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).

There are 2 ways to solve your problem. One mechanic friend of mine always used his deep socket and snapped the shaft, freeing the top end of the shock. If you prefer to loosend the bolt, hold the shaft with pliers in one hand while loosening the bolt with the other. Both methods work equally as well. Best of luck.

How to take rear shocks off of a 98 lincoln town car ?


Hello
You need a long reach 15mm or 17mm spanner, if you turn your air ride of jack the rear of the car look just over the rear wheel you will see the top of the shock, but if it turns then just cut the plastic cover on the shock & use mole grips to hold & turn the shock this should take about 25 mins to do the whole job both sides.

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.

Instalation of rear shocks on [95] towncar


It will take a fairly long wrench to get to the top shock nut. It is right between the frame and the body. It should take about an 1/8th a turn at a time. A wratchet wrench is best for this task.
