Question about Chevrolet Silverado 1500
Unless your pickup has adjustable shocks the job is just take them off, put them on.
Just remember to safely support the front lower control arms as the shocks hold them from dropping down.
Here are a couple more tidbits of information for you.
The front shock absorbers of the vehicle are multifunctional. In addition to contributing to a smooth ride they also provide the only stop to the front suspension when fully extended. Therefore, when servicing the shock absorber, service replacement shock absorbers must be equivalent to original shock absorbers in both extended length and strength. Use of shocks not complying to original equipment or strength could result in suspension over-travel or shock breakage. Suspension over-travel may result in suspension component breakage.
When doing the rear shocks you will also need to make sure you support the differential as the shocks limit the downward travel.
There you are, good luck with your job. Thank you for using FixYa.
