Shock absorbers (rear) — removal and installation Ford F150

Warning: The manufacturer recommends to replace all removed suspension component fasteners (nuts and bolts).

1. Raise the rear of the vehicle, support it securely on jackstands and block the front
wheels. Place a floor jack under the axle adjacent to the shock absorber being removed.

Raise the jack just enough to take the load off the shock absorber.

2. Remove the nut and bolt securing the lower end of the shock absorber to the rear axle (see illustration).
