it is not that common that you have to change blader and bushing...blader can be easily check out by looking if it is crack or to much warp...bushing will be ok if the coating is still there. i sugest that you bought after market race tech oil seal and dust...less expensive than honda and i only work with them and there is no issue yet. d'ont forget when you put oil into the shock you will have to wait to endclosed it till there is no air bubble at all in you're oil...thanks to leave good feedback.

Some hydrolic fluid leak from the left front shock. What & where is this GLT or GLV switch which causes the leak?

Hi Scott:
If I'm understanding correctly, the fork seal is leaking.
Typically the procedure would be to replace the seal, and at the same time make sure that there is no damage to the fork tube assembly that will cause the replacement seal to fail.
I would recommend that you get your local mechanic to either do this for you, or at least coach you through it if you've not done one before.

I have an 82 gl1100I with aslow leak in air shocks should I just replace them or try new orings?

It really depends on the condition of the shocks. Replacing the shocks with new ones is pretty expensive ($350-$400) but might improve the ride. Rebuilding your old shocks would be less expensive ($15 a seal plus o-rings for the connections). First check the tube connections for leaks (o-rings) then replace the shock seals and shock oil. You should be able to repair the old shocks for less than $50. I would make the decision based on the condition of the shock seal sliding surfaces and of course your financial situation.

Bmw 750 iL, 1996, suspension real hard, front end sitting much to high, help!

being 1996 750 4.8 litre fairly heavy car, I wouldn't doubt the car would need new struts/shock replacement all around. front tend to go out first before the rear because of extras weight of the motor, you can feel the ride more spongy going over bumps, poor handing when cornering and once awhile you can hear the metal hitting metal. have all coil springs also check, some get weaken and will make the car sit higher on one side or front sit higher than the rear or which ever. I would have the coil spring check and replace all shocks/struts you be surprise the car will ride as it was new, suspension has allot to do with comfort and handling. If you have to replace the shock/struts, get an estimate first from your local shop for the price of 4 shocks and then shop on ebay first to see if you can do a bit of saving, don't forget including your shipping also including into the cost. any garage will out it in for you.

How to replace rear shocks on 2003 bmw 325i

You have to take the trunk liners off of both sides. There will be 3 13mm nuts on each side for the shocks, and under the car is a 16 or 17mm bolt that has to be removed. I hope this helps.

Broken shock and drum/seal leak

Power off the wall mains. Open up the machine panel to look interiors. See if any springs or shocks (known as dampers) have broken or come off. The dampers should not slide in & out freely, if they're defective, replace. Tighten all loose wires, which may have come loose, future probs, so you dont have to open up again.

Next level your machine, front legs way up, means your machine is tilting towards you. Then adjust accordingly so that u cannot shake the machine with both your hands. Lock the nuts, only the fronts legs are adjustable, for most machines. (will get back to u)
