  • backdoor hydraulics

    ok. so i would have replaced them already but didn't feel like searching for a six-point star internal wrench. ya. so today i was supposed to (maybe still) be replacing my headliner which requires that tool. so i went right after school (noon dismissal today) and bought the parts from autozone. i went home and took a look but the mounting bracket that the o ring swivels (proper term?) on is wider than the replacement. i also don't know how to take the rod/pin out. i'm very confused. anybody here done it?

    all the info to search the part on the websites is as follows

    The title of this thread sounds the name of a porno.


    All it needs is a number behind it.

        Backdoor Hydraulics 12

        Chica wha chica wha chica wha wha!!!

        The shock you bought should have the brackets attached to them already. That is how mine came. You may have the wrong ones, or you have the dreaded universal type. If you have the UNIVERSAL, one size might fit all applications, hydraulic cylinders, there will be some drilling and cutting and cussing. I got mine at NAPA for $27 I think. They bolted right up.

        Good Luck,

          hmmmmmmm. napa. sounds like a plan. i can take them back i think and i think i will. autozone. hmpfff. they don't even have the right tool to remove the bracket. it's the external hex/star/6-point wrench. don't have it. i asked em where it was after buying the pumps and going home only to return...

          me (looking but not finding) "can you tell me where the 6-Point EXTERNAL wrench's are?"
          them "oh it's over there individually and in sets" (being an a$$hole)
          me "ok. i looked and didn't find it. can you show me where?"
          them "ya it's in the specialized tools section." (points to some random area)
          me (ticked) "thanks for the help." (walks over and looks but STILL can't find it) "ya. it's not there. i think i'll go to O'reilly."

          hell. even the pumps i got didn't even have all the parts. i'm taking the shiat back tommorrow and going to napa or o'reilly. o'reilly is cool cuz they let you use their tools in the parking lot.

            It all depends on the employees working.
            But yea, get you a set of Torx drivers and Torx sockets from someone such as Harbor Freight. They are a necessity when working on Jeeps!

                Tex, do NOT buy cheap torx bits internal or external. You'll make more trouble for yourself than the couple of bucks you save will be worth. I'm pretty sure 4WD sells these things, or go to a parts store that sells quality stuff. Also, when I coax a torx out of the hole I don't put it back unless I can't find the correct stainless fastener to replace the torx crap I removed. Of course, a budget is a budget but VALUE is quite often more important and patience will bring value in most cases. (Read SAVE YOUR MONEY and get the right stuff.)

                  so are you saying go to northern or harbor freight or what? im going to take the parts back today after school and them i think im going to o'reilly and buying the parts because they let you use some of their old tools if you stay in the parking lot.

                    If they will loan you the tools, save yourself a buck. But I would listen to blackwater and replace the fasteners with stainless that you can get at a good hardware store. For tools get craftsman at Sears or Husky at Home Depot. Then if you break them, they will replace for free.

                      so i finally returned them and went to o'reilly and got new ones WITH brackets. they were really nice compared to the jerks at autozone and i came home and replaced them in about 10 minutes. it works. i'm really glad. and o'reilly charges the EXACT same as autozone.
