Did this video help you?

Jason Medeiros: what if theirs the spring outside of the shock, do I need to compress the spring?

Chase Peterson: Anytime I am working on my truck I check YouTube for your tutorials. They are simple and easy to understand, Thank you!

Threedog1963: Hey, just installed the front shocks I bought from you on my 2001 Silverado. I have the springs up front, but other than that, easy breezy install. I did spray some stuff to penetrate and loosen rust on the top of the shocks about 30 minutes prior to removal. Glad I did. Also, I used impact wrench for the bottom bolts on the shock. From the time I lifted the truck to the time I dropped it. 1 hour. 40 minutes on the first side, 20 on the second. Thanks for the video. I'll be ordering rear shocks next week. You guys saved me close to $300 on this job.

V8 For A Heart: How tight do I tighten the top bolt? I’m honestly doing my suspension right now

Pepe Aguilar: Hello,

do the shocks have some type of oil inside them ?

Thank you

DaladendDarrowmere: tried locking pliers can not get nut loose control arm and spring in the way to get any wrench below any suggestions?

Judas Perez: +1A Auto Parts I recently purchased replacement shocks, they are monotube shocks. The piston component of the shock mounts at the bottom. The shocks I am replacing have the piston assembly of the shocks in a manner that currently as they are installed, have the piston mounted at the top. Did I order the wrong shock, or will the location, top or bottom, of the shock not matter?

happy journey: does anybody know the bolt sizes for these trucks shocks offhand?

gtfiveliter: Just changed all 4 shocks. Immediately after, i'm getting front end rattling/clunks (mainly driver's side) over little bumps constantly that wasn't there just prior. it's driving me crazy. Would it help to loosen the top shock nut a few turns? I heard it can help? Is the bottom nut not tight enough? Would completely worn out shocks mask worn sway bar end links (that's the type of sound), but they seemed ok? thanks!

Batman's Parents: Just wanted to thank you all for these videos. They have saved me a lot of time and money.

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.

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

Mjurado j: 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
