View Full Version : Changing shocks - supporting chassis

11-15-2006, 02:36 PM
In the manual it says to only jack on the differential housings, and support on jack stands at the outboard ends of the axle tubes. However, in the instructions for changing shocks, or removing axles it says to "support chassis on stands."

Anyone know where on the chassis it is O.K. to support the vehicle?

The most suitable place is under the rear radius arm forward mount bracket, by the triangular bushing. On the front, under the front raius arms, where they meet the axle casing.
Hope this assists.
