Did this video help you?

1964falconman: Once again, another great video! My dad and I are eternally grateful. I'd send donuts, but I think they'd spoil before getting to you.

Mr.&Mrs. Villamizar: how do you remove the spring and reinstalled?

Abe Santos: I got a Sierra Denali 08' it has a 6inch lift. What type of front shocks are recommended?

Miguel Jurado: is an alignment required after changing the struts? and i know depending on experience, what is the estimated time to change both front struts?

El Gio: Will this same process work on a 2001 4x4 chevy tahoe

phoenixfishing602: what if am doing a 1500 04 chevy do i have to buy a spring compressor?

Alma6est: have been hearing a low rubbing/groaning noise under vehicle, thought wheel bearing, u joints, checked trans gears, turns out to be bad shocks. Have changed the back ones, easy bottom bolt, but top came with 2 small bolts each secured on top by a clip to frame shock absorber nut. Of course nothing is easy, all the nuts are rusted, hard to get to with a ratchet extension and when one of these clips broke i had an endless rotating rust bolt.

I notice on my front shock the top where the vise clamped a hex key can be used, but due to rust i have lightly stripped this opening, no choise but to use the vise grip or cut the thing, and the new monroe shocks a wrench can be used which is nice

matt Lane: My leveling kit has brackets for the front shock is that right?

Dantastic: Why is there no spring on the front of these trucks? Just a shock absorber up front?

COMMANDER906: You Guys,,,1A Auto do a great job...thank you for helping us. A++++++++++

Google User: I've saved so much money, and learned so much just by watching 1A Auto videos. Thanks! keep it up

mic88ed: Thank you Sir. you just saved me $208.08.

infringinator: my brake guy just quoted $619 to do my truck. 619 for $100 in parts and undoing some bolts. Wow.

Chris Pena: thanks,,,,Very Helpful

libtechrider2010: Wouldn't you want to loosen the torsion keys bolts a little to relieve some of the tension prior to removing the shocks? I'm not sure, figured I would ask.

mictdave1: I don't consider myself a mechanic whatsoever but with the help of this video I was able to change my front shocks with no problems. It has inspired me to take on other maintenance and repair jobs on my 2006 GMC sierra. Thanks for the great videos

Jerry Curry: Is this the same process for a Yukon?

Roger Shields: Great instructions and video. I won't have to spend $200 to get them installed. 

Skot Ward: In need of some part advice...  :)

I have an '07 Silverado with coil over front struts, and I want to replace my OEM shocks with a set of Bilstein 4600's. I know which rear shocks to use, but the problem is my confusion over the correct front shocks/struts to purchase. Here's my problem...When I look up the part that I need for the front shocks/struts, I find two items.  One is the front Bilstein 4600 shock by itself, and the other is the "Strut Assembly." both of these seem to be the exact same thing with the difference being that the strut assembly has more mounting hardware.  I'm confused about which of these two I need.  Thanks guys! 

Vega G: What kind of shocks are those?
Brand/part number and do you sell them?
2006 silverado 1500 4wd

Thanks for your time
