Hello. Yes. This is a pretty tough job in that the parts you will have to remove often are so rusted that you need torches to remove them. Also, the job is so much easier on a lift as opposed to crawling under. All of that said I am providing you with a link to a site that will show you all of the equipment and tools you will need and then a step-by-step of how to do this job. http://www.explorerforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=212451

Biggest tip is make sure you have a good floor jack to support the end of the spring so you can pull the bolts out easily and then reposition springs to lign up then new shackles and re bolt everything.
YEp jack it up till they shakels are sligtly loose then remove the bolt one at a time adnd replace them also be sure you replace the brass busings if they are worn and use pins that have greese fittings. do the rear shackes first then once they are done do the front set by jacking it up a bit more, be sure to chock the front tires so it does not slide away from you.

Will a 1994 ford explorer rear hatch fit on a 1995 ford explorer?


Unfortunately no, the 1994 Ford Explorer hood latch will not fit on a 1995 model. You need to find a latch from between the years of 1995 - 97.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Where are the rear brake bleeder screws on a 1994 Ford Explorer


bleeders are always on the slave cylinders. If you have drum brakes, they will be just above where the brake line attaches. If you have disk brakes, they will be near the top of the caliper.

I am about to purchase a 84 ford f 150 with 133k original miles...any specific problems with this year...?


You didn't state if it was a v-8 or a 6cyl engine.
Thats not alot of miles if it is a six cylinder engine.
But you might want to check the rear spring shackles and shackle mounts,They rust off leaving the leaf spring with no support to carry anything.

Torque on spring shackles


My son works for Ford and had a sign-on to get into their online service manual and was able to look it up for me. I knew he could do this when I posted, but he wasn't home at the time and I had my truck on a lift. If interested, the torque specs on the spring shackles are 98lb, both at the frame and spring and 66lb for the shock.
