Cleaning rear air shocks

Search returned no results on this topic.

The owner's manual for my 2015 JGC indicates I should clean my rear air shocks with every oil change or after going off-road. It recommends I have the dealer do it (of course ) because it requires special tools.

I do my own maintenance whenever possible. Does anyone here know the tools and procedures to clean the rear air shocks?

My gut says just hose them off when in OR2, but I don't want to miss something important if it's more complex than that.

Re: Cleaning rear air shocks

I wasn't able to find any info on this either. I am generally not in mud for what it's worth... During servicing, I set to OR2 and use compressed air to blow away any loose debris. I see absolutely nothing wrong with plain soap and water either.
