Hello, my name is Ben. I own a truck exactly like yours. I changed my shocks at 46,000. If I were you, I would change them. If you drive with bad shocks it can cause the springs to wear out, which is a much harder repair. Or you can always do the " bounce test". Put your hands on the front fender and push down and let the shocks push up a couple of times and then let go. With good shocks the truck should stop bouncing when you let go.

    How to check rear shocks


    Lean all your weight on the rear bumper with your knee. quickly release the weight and watch as the car comes back up. If it rises back to level and stays there your shocks are okay. If it bounces up and down, even a little, replace the shocks (always in pairs). Also you will want to check your springs, coil or leaf, for broken leaves or coils. If the shocks and springs are okay you probably have an "out of round" tire or one with seperated belts. Have a local tire shop check the tire for you on a balance machine, or block the front wheels, jack up your car with the trans in neutral, and spin the tire. If it is out of round it may be fairly apparent. Hope this helps.

    I have a 2002 Tahoe LT with Autoride, when getting tires replaced I noticed one front and one rear shock were leaking, replacement quote was approx $550 each. Does a leaking shock need to be replaced...


    Hello, my name is Shaun. I will do my best to help you out with your problem. As far as your shocks needing to be replaced ASAP, i would say it's not an emergency. Worn shocks will result in a pretty bouncy ride, and if let go long enough, could result in irregular tire wear, but your truck won't fall apart if you don't change them today. Ultimately, the spring is what holds your truck in the air, the shock is just there to absorb impact and make your ride a little more comfortable. They also help in cornering, so expect a little bit of over-steer, as your truck will roll more quickly in tight turns. The shocks should be replaced in pairs, as different shocks have different ride qualities. (i.e both fronts, then both backs.) The Monroe shocks are okay, but they don't last quite as long as a higher end shock. At the price they quoted, you could buy a higher-end shock, do the work yourself, and still save a ton of money. And yes, it is basically as simple as unbolting the old shock and replacing it with the new. My advice to you would be to purchase a Haynes manual for your truck when you purchase the shocks. This will give you step-by-step instructions to change the shocks and will also be a valuable asset should other problems arise. Hope this helped you out, and if you have any more in-depth questions, feel free to reply to this answer and i will get back to you. Have a great day!

    My 2004 montana seems to have a bad shock in the rear. It vibrates after 55mph and feels like it jumps if you hit a pothole. Is this what it is?


    this is what bad shocks do when they are worn out.have the rear suspension checked out first just in case something in the back is bad.if all okay then replace both rear shocks/struts.they act like this because there is no restriction in the hydraulic portion of the shock to keep the wheels on the road when hitting bumps.

    Hi, as far as im aware these are roughly the same as the UK spec Nissan X- trail. The suspension system/shocks are relatively staright forward. Fairly basic system anyone with basic vechile knowledge should be able to change them.
