Front shock installation video
« on: May 08, 2018, 05:03:11 PM »
 My first try at an instructional video, it's pretty hard to talk to nobody and do a job. Kind of confuses me as well as remembering to not be in the way of the shot.

Not bad, it's hard to make them. I would use a higher camera angle so we can see the top nut and the bottom bolts.
Keep your cars analog.

I think I'll redo it but from the front under the bumper.

Toasty: I am not a newby,  but a long time lurker. In the shock video you used a Tokico HE 3346. Is this considered a softer shock than the HE 3346 Pro model?   The He 3346 is hard to find. I recently did also pick up a LWB 91.  I still have a 85 gen1 and an 89 SWB V6 manual, which I will keep.  I have used KYB s  in the past and found them harsh.  Just a NotherSteve.

My mistake . It is HE3346 HP series not pro.   I have found the HE 3346 on Ebay.

 So, the Trekmasters are not Trekmasters for the fronts. HE for the front and GE for the rears, i like them so far. Haven't taken them offroad but onroad they are pretty comfortable and the price is right. Also not a KYB fan, Welcome anotherSteve!

The GE are a twin tube design and use neoprene bushings and a seal that allows the shock to move freely while not allowing it to melt when pushed hard at higher temps they are better shocks and a Montero has a specific one GE3583. I have used Tokico shocks for 25 years and they have never let me down made in Japan for japanese vehicles. Not so good for american full size trucks.
