Question about 2003 GMC Yukon

Rear coil springs seem to be too low

Not sure if the truck has aftermarket lowering package. The rear coils have only four coils out of eight with actual travel. The truck sits level but the front torsion cams are lowered as far as the can go

Shold i need a lowering hangers to lower my car or should it only be shackles?


old post.
this car is coil spring car on all 4 corners all are.
89 to 2004 and newer.
so are sidekicks and Vitara's . same car.
so why not just ask how to lower coil spring cars and not guess at parts name,
they sell kits for this and are not cheap.
why have low rider 4wd, odd that.
The only way to do that is shorter springs,
the car body fits on a real A frame,. so the body can not be lowered ever. nor can a frame,
only the suspension can be lowered.
only samurai cars (jimny) are easy to lower with leaf spring mods.
see? (apples and oranges different they are)
in the old days, kid would , TORCH the springs on coil spring cars.
and as the coils got red hot, the car settled, and the guy on the
oxy torch yells over to owner , this low enough?
fun to watch , no fun to drive,

Replacing rear coil springs on toyota previa


Hi


Raise and support the vehicle

Remove the rear shock absorber

Push down on the lower control arm enough to allow the coil spring to slide out.

Remove the upper and lower insulators and check them to see if they need replacing.

I hope this helps

Steering not responding well


Automobiles: 2006-2007 Ford Five Hundred 2WD & AWD, Montego

If the steering is getting a little hard to turn at low speeds, this would indicate a loss of Power Steering, and the steering is reverting to "Non-Power" steering, just like the days of the Ford Model T or Model A. Loss of power steering is usually caused by low level of PSF (Power Steering Fluid).
So first on my checklist would be checking the PSF level in the reservoir.
Also bleed (air) from PS (Power Steering) pump.

The Ford Five Hundred has front MacPherson struts, so check these for leakage (of the dampening fluid in the strut cylinder), or breakage of their coil springs.
These springs can actually weaken over time, but this is impossible to see - you must "feel" it by bouncing the strut up & down - preferably with your hands on the top of the strut tower in the engine compartment (rather than on the exterior finish).
If the MacPherson struts have weak/broken springs, these components are not separately serviceable, and the strut would have to be replaced as a unit (and preferably both left/right to maintain smooth/even ride).

The Five Hundred also has rear shock absorbers with springs - check for leaks/breakage/weakness here too.

Steering losing responsiveness/wander - checklist
Priority Action Part Type Cause
1 Inspect Rack & Pinion - Center Wear From Internal Fluid Leaking Around The Rack Piston.
2 Inspect Steering Stabilizer Bracket - Loose or Broken Steering Stabilizer Bracket.
3 Inspect Front Lower Control Arm - Front Lower Control Arm loose/missing bolt(s)
4 Inspect Front Lower Ball Joints - Front Lower Ball Joint(s) Worn/Loose
5 Inspect Front Upper Ball Joints -Front Upper Ball Joint(s) Worn/Loose
6 Inspect Tire Pressure - Tire Pressure should be 35 PSI for the Five Hundred and Montego's P225/55R18 OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) tires.

Harsh ride - checklist

1 Inspect Rear Shock/Strut - Shocks/Strut failing/leaking.
2 Inspect Front Shock/Strut - Shocks/Strut failing/leaking.
3 Inspect Coil Spring - Incorrect Coil Spring Selection or Installation.
4 Inspect Coil Spring - Coil Spring broken.

No one makes air bags lifts for the Highlander 2wdr V6. How can you raise the rear to balance the load on the vehicle without changing the type of suspension. Which is a coil over-shock type? Bill Coker,...


Likely you can use monroe load leveler coil over shocks (check and see if they make them for yours) or you can replace stock rear springs with an aftermarket variable load spring.

How do i replace the front and rear strut/shocks on 97 dodge avenger?


Always a good idea to start by disconnecting battery. For front, raise it up, remove the wheel & sway bar connector from the dampner fork. You have to remove both the upper pinch bolt and the lower damper through bolt. You have to go under the hood to remove the (3) upper strut bolts, just dont remove the big spring center nut. With both the top and bottom removed, you should be able to slide the strut out. Then you can r & r the coil spring assy, just keep everything in the same position as it was removed.
The rears, you have to jack up and block the car because you are going to also have to take the weight off of the axle by jacking it up. Of course remove the wheel- You have to go inside the car because the top mouning nuts are under the ft rear package shelf covers.will have to remove speakers & top package shelf & the covers over the nuts (2 of them). (you do have the car blocked & the axle slightly raised at this point dont you? cause you dont want to remove these nuts until you do . Now you can remove the lower strut mounts and slide it out. Again, you will have to r/r the coil spring assy with a spring compresser & be sure to put things back in the same orientation. hope this helps, rick
