How to remove the top bolts from the rear shocks

Not prblem on the bottom bolt but How do you remove the top bolts from the rear OEM shocks? Are the fittings welded to the body or are there nuts behind the bolts like on the front shocks? Do I need a special tool? Help? Replacing with 0 lift skyjackers.

Bolts should be easily removed after breaking them loose. If someone replaced them and used nuts on the backside, it may present a problem & require cutting the heads off. Sometimes you can snake a distributor wrench above to grab nut but on most jeeps this is difficult because there isn't enough clearance. Really soak them down with good solvent at least twice several hours before attempting to remove.

How to change front shocks


The old style shock is not hard to change. Its when you have struts that extra tools are needed.
There is a nut or two on the top of each shock stem. The second nut is often used as a locking device to keep the primary nut from backing off. Many do not use a second nut, but use a washer or lock washer to keep the primary tight.
The bottom fixtures usually have a pair of bolts holding the shock mounting plate to the "A" frame of the suspension.
Some Mechanics keep the weight of the vehicle on the "A" frame when changing the shocks to increase the clearance provided between the ground and the van(floor jack). A van on the hoist has exceptional clearance and it does not matter if the suspension hangs down, you still can fit the shock into its position.
Most nuts and bolts on the front are 9/16th or smaller. The rear shocks use larger bolts.
I would jack the vehicle and spray the backside of the lower bolts with WD-40 or similar a day before attempting to remove the bolts. Broken bolts are a pain, this one procedure could make removal easier. The bolts can easily break from rust.
There are sometimes Sales at Sears or Goodyear or Midas with free Installation. Shops use to charge $5-$10 each to install shocks.

Need to replace front and rear shocks on a jeep wrangler


Easy, Quick and fun.
spray all the bolts with P.B. Blaster. wait a day or so....spray them again....wait.
Lift and secure the vehicle, Remove the front tires....
Loosen all the bolts carefully.
remove the  old and replace with new.
The front top shaft is tricky if the nut won't loosen easily.
I cut off mine with a hack saw because depending on the type  on shocks on there you won't be able to loosen the nut as the complete shaft turns
and  is enclosed in the shock body etc
The back is easier in that there are two bolts on top and two on bottom.
Good Luck

Replace coil spring


You have to remove them - that "block" is the upper strut-to-body mounting section and serves as the upper seat for the spring as well as the anchor for the top of the strut. You need to take those four 17mm bolts out, as well as the rear upper sway bar bolt, the upper control arm bolt (at the top of the hub), and the bottom bolt on the strut, where it goes through the lower control arm. You'll then have to compress the spring enough to take the bolt out of the "block" (it goes through sideways, and I believe is 19mm on the bolt head as well as the nut). At this point, you can slide the spring/strut out of the block, decompress the spring, pull out the strut, and install a new spring over the strut. Recompress enough to get the top of the strut visible through the anchor bolt hole in the block, rebolt it, decompress the spring, and reinstall the assembly in the car. Usually when you go to reinstall it, the bottom of the strut is not angled quite right once the top four 17mm bolts are back in and the block is secured to the body. I put a large screwdriver through the lower strut bolt hole at the bottom of the strut and use that to turn it, or I grab the weld near the bottom of the strut with large ChanneLock pliers and turn it until it's aligned with the control arm properly. Once it is, put the lower bolt back in, rebolt the control arm and sway bar, and you're good to go.

Note - this job will not affect alignment specs - you don't remove any bolts used in aligning the car, so that's not a concern when doing this repair.
