Yes jack the car up from the jacking point so the tyre is off the ground this is located under the the chassis rail. Remove the tyre so it's out of your way. Remove the bolt that goes through the centre. Pry the bushes out with a small pry bar or large screw driver. Check that spring or bolt is not over worn. Install new ones. It may be a little difficult to line up to install bolt again but pisstantce is required. Refit tyre Remember remove the jack. DONE

My suburban kind of rattles/knocks in the rear end when driving over quick sudden bumps like a gravel road.


Rust and bushing wear are problems with the rear suspension components in these vehicles. You did not mention the year, but you probably have leaf springs back there. You need to check the shackle bolts and the leaf retaining rivets for loose or missing parts. If you have coil springs, check the lower spring bumpers - one or both my be badly worn or gone. And yes, any bushings may need replacing.
As far as the brakes are concerned, that is probably the noise you hear. You need to have the shoes replaced right away, and since they are that badly worn, the drums will need to be turned or probably replaced.

How to replacefront leaf springs on toyota hilux dualcab4 x4


undo the 2 small retainer studs from the pin-plate. Place a nut on the thread of the pin and do up partway Ensure that the vehicle is placed on stands with the wheels just touching the ground so as to relieve all tension in the springs. Hammer the nut on the pin . It will also help if you use a pair of stilsons on the plate twisting while hammering. The plate will move out revealing a large hole on one side . When the pin moves freely remove the nut and hammer on the plate. As to the front swing shackle remove both nuts and with a bar between the spring and the hanger hammer the plate and pins out. undo the spring u- bolts and remove the spring Note-1--- do one side at a time as it retains the location of the front axle for spring replacement. Note--2---Hilux springs are bad for sagging so have an extra leaf fitted under main leaf Note--3-- do not use eurothane bushes as they will crack the chassis in adverse conditions.

check the track bar bushings for play in them, also check to make sure that the sway bar links are not broken, also if the rear axle has leaf springs for suspension it then could be the rear shackle bushings.

Front leaf springs shackles keep folding up and droping the front end


You will need to replace the front leaf springs or have them set and tensioned. This entails a specialist heating and bending the springs to their original shape. While you have the leaf springs out replace the shackle bushes. Depending on your budget now would be the time to buy those Old Man Emu suspension parts you've been eyeing.

Replacing front shackle 1983 jeep cj7


Shackles are pretty straight forward. Remove the existing bolts, change the shackles and reverse the procedure to install. Good idea to change the bushings while you're in there if they are at all questionable. It's best to do this with the CJ in the air, supported on the frame and use a floor jack under the axle to lift/lower the spring in/out of the shackle, one side at a time.
