Did an almost overhaul on the rear end today. New airbags, new shocks and new airlines.
Don’t know if you can make out the split in this photo, that’s why I was only loosing air on standard and acsess levels I think.
The clip on the passenger side helpfully snapped, so it took me almost an hour to remove the remains, nothing a rope hammer and a pry bar couldn’t sort out. Then again it took forever in general, clearly the original bags I think, they had the landrover stickers still on the top of them.
Don’t have too much of a go for the state of my undercarriage, it’s in the works! Jut getting the mechanics sorted first.
Safest to say I was shocked at how fast the car now rises up! Took me a bit by supprise when I re-inflated the system!
Safest to say the car feels 100% different. Mainly due to the original shocks being completely ruined. I compressed one down to get it out, 2 hours later it’s still sat there compressed.
Shagged, being the term?
Only problem was that my car seems to have a 19mm bolt for the drivers rear shock and a 18mm for the passengers! 18mm is where my socket set steps down. And I don’t have a step-down for my breaker bar! So I’m currently on one brand new shock and one terrible one!
It’s just for one day as I’ll go out tommorow after work and get one and quickly swap out the shocks.... as long as the bolt moves!
Can you change the shocks with the car on the ground and the EAS set to high?
