[QUOTE=TacoMX;6759785]It was only certain years between 01-04. If it doesn't come up in the recall, then you are fine (unless of course your Ball joints are worn out from normal wear and tear).


That makes me feel better.

Nope. On 01-04

Rubber down, then remove the rubber boots.

1. You want the shaft down so no water can collect on top of the seal end of the shock body and get into the seals.

2. The rubber boots hold moisture and cause the shafts to rust. I have run all my shocks rubber less ( ) with no issues.

Every time in the past I have used the rubber boots, I end up taking them off to reveal rust, mud, water, etc...gunked up inside the boot.

Ya I think so. Not sure nothing to identity it. But that's what it most closely resembles.

Edit: just googled it, and it is an older all pro rear
