Should be just a matter of buying new ones removing four bolts one bolt at the top of each shock and one at the bottom of each shock. Pulling the new shocks open and closed a few times and putting them back in the car... Should be easy even for a novice... Hope this helps... Good luck...

How do I chnage the front and rear shocks in a 2001 4.0


The shocks in the rear just unbolt top and bottom, disconnect the air line and replace them.

Struts are used in the front. You'll need to remove them and then have a spring compressor to change the struts. An alignment check is recommended after the struts are replaced.

Check the level switch at the back of the car - this turns the compressor on and off as the ride height changes. It may have come loose, is stuck or faulty.

Some SUVs the rear shocks bolt to the floor panel and some bolt to a hanging bracket from the bottom. The bottom of the shock always uses the rear axle bracket. Make sure the car is jacked up safe with jack stands and level surface

How do I change the rear shocks in my 2003 Suzuki XL7?


You are correct, this is an easy job on this vehicle. Remove the upper and lower shock mounting bolts...Note how the rubber groments are installed, new gromets will come with your new shocks and will need to be installed the same way. Bolt the new shock in place, i prefer to do the top mount first, then secure the bottom mount. Do not over tighten and split the gromets.
Shocks should always be replaced in pairs...
Monroe or KYB make a very good product... i would not recommend a Gabriel shock.
Good luck...i hope this helps, please take time to rate me a fixya.

Changing rear shocks on a 1990 jag


No. But if can't get it on a lift or high enough to work under comfortably..it will be very awkward. The calipers get in the way when you are removing the springs and shocks as a unit. You can move the part and get it out and down, but you will need to remove the rear wheels and let the rear springs hang down.
Make sure you have a good spring compressor to get the old springs off....in most cases it is the springs that go soft and not the shocks...
Don't assume that it is the shocks unless you know for sure they are bad.

This is a dangerous job if you do not have the proper equipment for compressing the spring that is around the rear shock. I do not recomend performing this job without the proper equipment. Unloading the spring without it compressed can cuase injury.

If you have the proper equipment this is how you do it.

REMOVAL - SHOCK ASSEMBLY NOTE: Access for the nuts attaching the rear shock assembly upper mount to the vehicle is through the inside of the trunk.
  1. Roll back carpeting on top of the rear shock tower to access shock mounting nuts.
  2. Remove plastic cover from the top of the shock assembly.
  3. Remove 2 nuts attaching the shock assembly upper mount/spring seat to the shock tower.
  4. Raise vehicle on jackstands or centered on a frame contact type hoist.
  5. Remove the rear wheel and tire assembly from the vehicle.
  6. Remove two fasteners holding the splash shield to the shock assembly upper mount.
  7. Remove bolt attaching shock absorber to rear knuckle
  8. Remove the shock absorber from the rear knuckle first when removing the shock absorber from vehicle by pushing down on the rear suspension.
  9. Move shock assembly downward and tilt top of shock outward, then remove shock assembly from vehicle through top of wheel opening.
