Blown load leveling shocks

I noticed a rattling noise coming from the back of the jeep that has gotten worse recently. I crawled underneath and both rear LL shocks are leaking after only 28k miles. I called the dealer and i have an appt for monday morning. Is there anything else i should have them check while its in the shop?

Re: Blown load leveling shocks

Search for "rattle/creak in rear" and you will find a few threads on it. They have gone through 3 or 4 part revisions on the LL shocks. I had one replaced with the latest one and haven't had any problems with it yet.

Re: Blown load leveling shocks

went to the dealer and they looked the shocks and found the left rear was leaking. They ordered a replacement shock, they said it should be in about 5-10 days.

Question the dealership because the TSB I read said both shocks should be changed at the same time. Maybe I read it wrong but couldn't hurt.

I read that too. It's in the TSB instructions for this fix. Both rear load leveling shocks must be replaced AT THE SAME TIME.

Re: Blown load leveling shocks

I only had the passenger side replaced and haven't had the time to make it back to the dealership to question it. No noise anymore though so that's a plus!

I agree that both should be replaced, and im going to make a push to replace the other one since its probably going to go out next. Im trying to find the TSB for the rear shocks so i can print it out and show the service manager.

Re: Blown load leveling shocks

Should be one of the most recent on WK2Jeeps.com if you are using that. I believe they are posted in order by date and I know it was only a few weeks old.

Re: Blown load leveling shocks

I hadn't seen the TSB yet, but heard a noise over bumps at low speeds, so I took my '12 in when i tried to order CRD. They referenced this TSB and ordered parts, should pick it up at lunch tomorrow.

I had just hit 30k on mine when it happened.
