    @Guerreroville We currently do not have a shock replacement video on a 1977 Monte Carlo. However the basics may be similar on that vehicle.

    @Vacmasterthegreat Yes the process to remove the shocks on your 1991 Chevy S10 should be the same.

    @odrigo90 The basics should be similar. Usually there are 1 or 2 bolts at the top and 1 bolt at the bottom that hold them in place. hope this helps you out.

    @spelunkerd If you have a strut the shock and the coil spring will be set up as one assembly, and if it’s not a strut the shock and coil spring will be separate from each other on the vehicle.

    I guess I’m a little confused by the description of shocks inside loaded struts for this vehicle. How do you tell on inspection if your vehicle has shocks or struts? Shock replacement seems easy, but I wouldn’t want to loosen the wrong nut under tension.

    Is it the almost the same process for a 2010 Chevy 1500 I’m am about to change the shocks and wondering if I can do it my self?

    is this the same for a 91 s10? I think(but I’m can’t remember) that the shocks on mine are next to the spring, not in it, but that might be my Nissan I’m thinking of.
    also, being on a very tight budget, and seeing my truck is a backup rustbucket, which would be more beneficial to replace for ride comfort, front or back shocks?

    Well I don’t think I’ll be using the sawzall on the s10 4wd. It has a different bolt configuration.

    @DZEyoyo123 Your Grand Marquis is a different make and model, so the procedure would be different. At the currrent time we do not have a video of the Grand Marquis shock installation.

    I have a 2005 Mercury Grand Marquis, would I replace the front shock(s) the same way?

    What do I do if the top bolt is so rusted that the vice grips just chew up the top of the shock? That’s what happened to me. I can’t even get it loose.

    @1aauto is this the same setup as the 2001 s10 blazers?

    @macwhite4265 – It is very similar on a Tahoe. 2wd vs 4wd will make a slight difference, but it is still fairly easy & straightforward to do.
