i got 22 on my 88 caprice i put 4 inch lift springs front and rear. tires are 265/35r/22
A person can change the back shocks on a 1995 Chevy Caprice by unmounting them from the upper lower mounts. The shocks can then be removed from the vehicle and new shocks put in their place.
I used air shocks in the back and about 5 blocks n the front and no scrub
remove front windshield from a 1983 Chevrolet caprice
Struts on the front , but motorcraft.com lists shocks and struts for the back ( I'm confused ! )
Both shocks on the front, struts on the back depending on the make it might have it both ways!
Worn out shocks have a unmissable swishing noise, The front shocks will wear out before the back ones in most cases. If it is still stock then after 50,000 miles they (front shocks) will start to wear the back ones should be fine for another 10,000 miles. Shocks will significantly affect body roll. But
Smaller and stiffer shocks/springs on the front, remove a leaf spring or 2 on the back and get stiffer shocks/leafs back there as well.
front struts go behind the wheels and in the front and rear shocks go in the back
front and back both should be 5 X 5
if it is a 305 5.0 litters driver side from front of car to back is 1,3,5,7 and passenger side is from front to back is 2,4,6,8
It has a shock on all 4 wheels.
Right behind the a arm in the front on the back on the rear end
a car can potentially have both shocks and struts. I don't know how common this is, but a car could have shocks in the front and struts in the back or vice versa. that is, depending on the combination, a car could have both, but I have never seen this.
Those have shocks on them. I replced the rear ones on my '97 a while back. Those were pretty easy. I haven't tried the front ones yet.
The car tilts forward on the shocks as you slow down. Then when you finally stop, the front shocks pop back up, and you are thrown slightly backwards. :)
#1 plug is driver's side, front of engine.
Assuming you checked all the bulbs and fuses, it sounds like the signal switch is shot.
lubricate the back where the old shocks used to be and ask a Audi dealer for A4 shocks
I use an old trick I learned that has served me well. Bounce up and down on the front bumper. The car should stop bouncing after 2-3 bounces. If it keeps going after that I'd consider the shocks worn. Front and rear shocks can wear at different rates, so repeat the test on both the front and back of the car. One set can be good while the others are not.
my understanding was that struts typically are on the front of a vehicle while shocks are on the back. yes there should be a difference, far more weight in the front of a sable than the back, even with the trunk loaded. my guess is that they are very different parts.
Well if you really are putting 24's you are going to have good air shocks in the back, and put some good shocks or knuckles in the front for the car can be even, and in the back aswell your going to have to put adapters, or spacers to space the rims from the frame,
yes they should fit on the front but not sure on the back, you might need air shocks on the back for them to fit.
I had a 98 which is the first year of the new body style. Since it has coil springs front and back, the only thing is change the springs to "cargo coil" from Moog and/or put load leveler shocks on the front and/or back. Load leveler shocks are shocks that has a spring over top of the shock. I am not sure Monroe has load levelers any more. Gabriel does. Other than this, I do not know of anything else you can do to firm up the suspension.
the rotors are front mounted brake (pads) and the rear are usually the spring type ..also known as(shoes)
it has rear shocks
