Re: Rearend or rear suspension clunk/creak

I'm afraid I have to plead ignorance to the self leveling shocks. Someone looked a little while ago and could not find an aftermarket shock yet. I would assume your Jeep is set up with the same upper...

Re: Rearend or rear suspension clunk/creak

Re: Rearend or rear suspension clunk/creak

You have to pull the entire shock. When you take it out, the cover is basically a loose piece of metal that sits over the top of the mount. When you take it off you will see where the top of the...

How did they come up with the coil spring idea--I'm assuming you had shock problems as well-or did you just have a clunk w/o shock issues?

Re: Rearend or rear suspension clunk/creak
