ITEM TO BE
Be careful when feeling shock absorbers. They
can heat up enough to cause burns.
Prior to performing this check, the vehicle must
be operated for 510 minutes.
a. Attempt to move shock absorbers from side to side. If movement
is present, shock absorber bearing or pin is defective. Refer to WP
0285 00 for removal and installation instructions.
b. Tighten loose mounting bolts. Torque upper bracket bolts (1) to
145175 lb-ft (197237 Nm) and lower bracket bolts (2) to 300340
lb-ft (407461 Nm).
