Hi there. I've tried tonight to do the same job of replacing the rear shocks. All went well (yes WD40 is a must) until I tried to undo the lower bolts of the old shock. The shock keeps spinning!!! How do you get around this? Tried loads of funny ideas but no success. Thanks for any advice.
monkey wrench round the shock tube its a pain in the ass but thats how i did mine. if you aint re-using the shock then you can use mole grips if you got a set big enuff but usually stilsons work perfectly
The shock keeps spinning!!! How do you get around this?
I had the same problem with the front shocks, I simply drilled a hole into the shock and stuck a longish bolt into the hole so that when the shock spun the protruding bolt would eventually stop at something solid thus allowing me to get the nut's off.
today i changed all four shocks on my discovery for monroe 4x4 adventure gas shocks. i used an oil filter remover with the webbed strap to remove the front shocks, it held the shocks firmly and just a bit of heat to the lower nut it came off a treat !
