Question about 2003 Suzuki XL-7
My rear, driver's side shock needs to be changed, because it is leaking. How do I change it myself? Dealership is charging way too much to do something that seems so simple.
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.
