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.

2005 Dodge Ram 1500 Quad Cab 4WD need to change Shocks/Struts? Is this a diy project?


It should be. To replace the front shocks, there are two bottom bolts to remove and one nut on the top of the shock. The rears have one top bolt and one bottom bolt. Just regular tools should be fine to do the job. I would also use some WD-40 to help loosen any rusty bolts.

How do I take off the rear shocks on 2003 for explorer sport trac


HI, you will need to raise the rear of the truck up and support the rear axel with jack stands. You will need to remove the spare tire to make access to the top shock bolts easier. Then remove the bottom bolt and remove the shock.

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).

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.
