2008 Mercury grand marquis LS - Shock 5993 - How Tight Should The Top Nut Be?

Started by Ed 26 days ago Replies (2)

Hoe tight should the the threaded top nut be on the first bushing (where do I stop?). 

Also:  Should this nut be tightened with the rear wheels on or off the ground?

    Ed,

    You will want to tighten the retaining nut until the bushings expand to be roughly the same size as the retaining washers. This should be done with the weight of the vehicle on the ground.
