So I was replacing the fender flares I took off to bedline today and noticed there is something wrong with my rear passenger suspension.
Now I know enough to know that this is a shock absorber and it is a ProComp es3000 but I don't know much more than that or what to do about it. I think they are lifetime warranty but the fact that it rusted out is concerning.
That is rusted apart right? The end isn't just shaped like that?
I bought the jeep in October from a dealer who had a lot of mods put on it back in Feb 2012 to get it to sell. It sat on the lot presumably from Feb to Oct leaving it in less than stellar shape. My Smittybilt rear tire carrier XRC was put on at the same time and had rusted off by April this year, only 14 months later.
But I digress. I have been reading up what I can on suspension lifts tonight and it doesn't look too difficult to replace if it is just the shock abrobrr. I'm concerned that may be a piece of my frame broken off with it which would be problematic. It got dark soon after I took the pix so I didn't have time to get in there and investigate tonight. Will look at it tomorrow.
What do you guys suggest?
