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.

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

Front end clunking noise going over small bumps


It could be a couple of things.
Loose or worn out strut - (jack up car, remove tire and shake the strut really hard to see if it's loose. Check for signs of leaking or damage to strut)
Missing rubber isolator under front spring (visually inspect the suspension while tire is off).
Broken sway bar mount or missing rubber in the mount on the frame. (Lay under the front and look for where the sway bar mounts to the frame. Make sure everything is tight and the rubber is still in it.
