Hi all few newbie questions. Picked up a set of tough dog foam cell shocks for my '14 lsm and was hoping to get the rears in this weekend while I've got a bit of time.

1. Do i need to grease the inside of the mounting bolts. (rubber bushes, not bonded like the front)

2. Do i tighten nuts all the way whilst car is on stands or wait till i drop it back down. Also i don't have a torque wrench will this be ok?

3. Will i need to support diff with the jack whilst shocks are out.

4. And does the park brake (auto gearbox) lock the front wheels? (i will chock the front wheels but i only have some hardwood offcuts at the moment so some extra safety will make me feel more comfortable under there)

Im sure some of these are pretty obvious and i have experience working on cars just my first shock install. Thanks for the help hope i can give back to the forum one day as well.

1.Grease everything especially the sides where the rubber bush comes in contact with the washers.

2. Best done on the ground if possible on the rear but not critical, with the front shockies however the lower MUST be done up with the weight of the vehicle on it.

3. No you won't have to.

4. The park brake will not lock the front wheels.

No need to even jack the car to do the rear shocks there's plenty of room under there just undo the top and bottom nuts and pull them out, when replacing just put the top on with the nut finger tight and then compress the shock to the right length and push it on and tighten nuts fairly firm and no you won't need a torque wrench.


Hi Danno
What type of grease for the bushing please as I am going to put a set of Bilstein on the rear. cheeers
