RandyA Posted January 13, 2016 Report Share Posted January 13, 2016 It's not my truck or me but another frequent contributor to this thread. Perhaps he will reveal his identity here soon, but both of us are in the same Florida RV Park if you care to guess. It was suppose to be a 5 minute job but it turned out to be more like a 5 hour job. The lower shock bolt was literately frozen (rusted) to the steel bushing inside the rubber part of the shock. Despite PB Blaster, a sledge hammer and air hammer it would not budge. The only available alternative was to cut both ends of the bolt inside the shock mount - not really that easy on a G8 bolt with a battery powered grinder spinning a cut-off wheel. But, it is now out. Tomorrow a new bolt for the shock and maybe doing the 5 minute change on the driver's side . Why is it the seemingly simplest projects turn out to be so complicated ?
