    Have a tear in my driver side rear air shock. Should i change both or just the bad one? Really makes my truck handle shitty at high speed. Also truck still sits level and i hear no leaks. Weird. Truck also rides alot better with weight in the back. Any advice input. Thanx

    Re: Step by step to replacing rear shocks

    I have that same issue a tear on both rear shocks. The truck still sits high and I don't hear any leaks nor do I notice any less ride quality at high speed.maybe I have to pay closer attention.I thought those tears I saw were on some kind of protective cover but did not effect ride quality. I guess I need prepare to purchase a new pair of shocks and join the numerous other who had to deal with this issue
