Question about 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 2WD
If it's got the coil over shock you take the 3 nuts off the top and the pivot bolt on the control arm, you may also need to pop the upper ball joint loose to get the lower control arm down far enough get the assembly out to compress the spring to change the shock.The center nut on the top of shock has pressure on it from the spring so do not remove that one til spring is compressed. If it does not have a coil over then it may be just the center nut on top if it goes through a bushing then the bottom bolt,just to be safe have the lower control arm sitting on a jack stand as that coil spring may have some pressure on the arms and use a floor jack on the body or cross member to relieve if you need to. I believe the shock will either come through the center of control arm on your 2wd or if it doesn't go through the center should come off then.
