  • When compressing the damper spring, use a commercially available strut spring compressor according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  • Refer to the Exploded View as needed during the following procedure.

Damper/Spring - Disassemble

Suspension System - Inspection, Overhaul & Adjustment

  1. Compress the damper spring.

    NOTE: Do not compress the spring more than necessary to remove the nut

  2. Remove the nut (A) while holding the damper shaft with a hex wrench (B)
  3. Release the pressure from the strut spring compressor
  4. Disassemble the damper as shown in the Exploded View.

Inspection

Damper/Spring - Inspect

Suspension System - Inspection, Overhaul & Adjustment

  1. Install the nut on the damper shaft end, and set the socket wrench and T-handle on the nut
  2. Compress the damper assembly by hand, and check for smooth operation through a full stroke, both compression and extension. The damper should extend smoothly and constantly when compression is released. If it does not, the gas is leaking and the damper should be replaced
  3. Check for oil leaks, abnormal noises, or binding during these tests.

Reassembly

NOTE:

  • When compressing the damper spring, use a commercially available strut spring compressor according to the manufacturer's instructions.
