Remove the tire, put something under the rear axle and remove the upper and lower bolts. I just checked the manual and thats what it says. Hope this helps. Cobra :-)

The rear shocks on my 1997 lincoln continental went out and i was wondering if it could just be a fuse or if i needed to just go and get plain shocks installed all around, i have heard that was cheaper....

My best guess is that the little black box that was connected to hose that was connected to a tank has something to do with your rear shocks not working. These vehicles have air ride suspensions. I would take it to a garage and have it checked.

How to remove rear shocks in my 1997 ford eplorer

There should be 2 bolts in a bow-tie shaped braket on the top of the shock, with a nut on the other side, through the frame. There should be one large bolt and nut on the bottom of the shock, through a braket on the rear axle.

Lift the vehicle up by the frame on both sides, so that the axle is dangling underneath the vehicle, and the shocks should be very easy to remove and reinstall.

Air shocks not working on rear of my expedition

Have you had any work done on the truck recently? did you take it somewhere that they had to place it on a lift? with air shocks a lot of places don't realize they have to shut off the air and let the truck settle before it gets lifted, sounds to me like you might have a hole somewhere in the rear shocks. well hope this gives ya something to be able to figure it out...
