Shock Absorber Service and Repair Without Air Suspension


1. Raise and support the vehicle.

2. Use the special tool 014-0094 or equivalent to support the rear axle.

3. NOTE: Replace shock absorbers individually as required. It is not necessary to replace in pairs. NOTE: To assist in removing the upper attachment on shock absorbers, use a plastic dust tube and place an open end wrench on the hex stamped into the dust tube's metal cap. For shock absorbers with a steel dust tube, simply grasp the tube to prevent stud rotation when loosening the retaining nut. Remove the shock absorber upper retaining nut, washer and insulator from the stud on the upper side of the frame. 4. Remove and discard the nut. Disconnect the shock absorber lower stud from the mounting bracket on the rear axle assembly.


1. To install, reverse the removal procedure.
