Do I need to replace the front axle damper after installing new starter in my 2001 sport trac?


Hi Pete, If the bolt you refer to is part of the shock absorber you will need to replace the damaged unit. If you replace one we recommend replacing both on the same axle. If however the unit is a McPherson strut type suspension, and the bolt you refer to is that which is mounted onto the shock pad, bolting onto the shock tower it can be replaced with another. It is a special bolt which has a splined shoulder. (The spline is to lock the bolt in place while being tightened) To replace it. knock out the broken piece with a pin punch and insert the replacement. If you need to remove the shock pad from the assembly, you will need to use suspension spring compressor clamps. Hope this info is of help? Regards John

Very wobbly and makes a noise when spinning, we took off the back and saw two things that look shocks on each side, the one on the left is broke and just hanging, what are these called and how hard are...


hi.
i think you are referring to the damper units. they are basically shock absorbers so you were on the right track. they are very easy to fit, i think it is a nut or nut and bolt either end same as most car shocks. i would recommend replacing the pair though, as they have both done the same work and if one has failed then the other is probably not going to be too far behind.
i had one of these dampers go on my machine and managed to change the pair in well under an hour.

Making a banging noise on spin and throwing itself around the kitchen. i think the drum has come loose?????


well sort off.

likely is that the dampers on the underside of the drum have failed. (they are like shock absorbers)


The drum is also suspended from a couple of springs, you also need to check these.


To check springs the lid needs to be removed.


There normally are 2 dampers attached to the drum and the frame.


They are accessed by tipping the machine onto its side.


However the machine is heavy and make sure you disconnect power and water if you want to investigate.


Cost of new dampers are around 50 each.

In the spin mode and on a platform, the washer will not stay stationary on the floor. What can we do to correct?


Your drum is going unbalanced with the load.
Either you do have an unbalanced load but more likely is that the dampers on the underside of the drum have failed. (they are like shock absorbers)
There normally are 2 dampers attached to the drum and the frame.
They are accessed by tipping the machine onto its side.

    NOTE

    Be aware of the direction of the damper mounting base so that the small hole dot on it is toward the front inside of the vehicle,


  2. Loosely install the flange nuts on the top of the damper.

  3. Loosely install the flange bolt on the bottom of the damper.

  4. Raise the suspension with a floor jack to load it with the vehicles weight before tightening the nuts and bolt.

  5. Continue the installation in the reverse order of the removal procedure.

Shock or stablizer drum


Power of the wall socket first. Unscrew the shock or 'damper' completely as it is known, noting position, head tail. Test it, it should not be pumping very loose, if so you should replace it. Otherwise just put it back in and tighten the bolts well.

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)

1990 cherokee shakes badly only at 50-55mph


Check the front steering damper. The steering damper is a shock that is mounted horizontaly in the front. The damper is bad if you see oil leaking from it or if the car has high mileage and never been replaced.

Had two recent occasions when the front end of my 1999 Jeep starting shaking when I hit a rought surface of the higway. Very frightening. I was told that I would probably need a front steering damper...


Ok, I figured out what was wrong with my 2005 Wrangler. By installing the coil spring spacers, I reduced the actual Caster angle of my front end. When I hit certain bumps at certain speeds, the front wheels would wobble back and forth violently as if i was pushing a bad shopping cart really fast. Anyhow, the dealer has replacement eccentric bolts to adjust the caster, but they didn’t stock them and they cost over $50.00. So, I opted to make my own off set washers to push the lower portion of the axle forward (gaining positive Caster). If you think this may help you, feel free to contact me at bb62471@yahoo.com .

Shocks broke, now drums spins freely


What you need to check thoroughly are the belt & the 2 shocks (dampers). The dampers should be replaced & fitted tightly, broader ends fitted below.
