I did two of these jobs last month.The replacement shocks I got just bolted on very much like the originals on the top side and cliped on the bottom. Removeing the old one is a little tricky figering out how to flip the little spring clip up then pull it out then pop the shock off.Have somebody to hold the gate up for you while you work it is much safer than a prop rod.

To open the tailgate you have to use the key in the tailgate lock. If it is like mine, it does not always release immediately and you just need to push on the tailgate while the key is turned. You should be able to hear the latch release and then you just lift the tailgate up. If the shock absorbers for it are worn out it will be a slow hard lift to get it to open completely. l

How does a tipper tail gate work?

There's a couple different types of tailgates found on dump/tipper trucks. The most common type hinges from the top and latches on the bottom. The latches can be either manual release or air release (usually from a button inside the cab). When the dump body is tipped back, gravity causes the tailgate to open, and the commodity is also dumped out of the bed by the force of gravity. Another variation of this type of tailgate opens to the side. Some can even be converted to work either way. There's also the lift gate tailgate. At the top of the tailgate are two hydraulic arms which push out and cause the whole tailgate assembly to lift up. The vehicle operator can also opt not to use the lift gate feature, and it'll then operate in the same fashion as the first tailgate I described.
