I have a 96 Ford E150 with 136000 miles, 4.9 liter, that I purchased a few weeks ago. The front shocks were leaking very badlly and I am replacing them with new ones. Put plenty of penetrating oil on the bolts and let it set for a few hrs. Driver side went without a hitch. Passenger side was a different matter. Lower shock mount stud on the radius arm broke in half. What do recommend I do.
I just adopted my brothers four kids and I am low on funds so I can't donate right now.
