The 2005 to 2014, Ford F-250 uses shocks in the front and rear. The installation process is straightforward and requires only a few tools. Lift the truck, remove the front wheels. Before removing the shock, support the axle using a jack. Remove the nut from the upper shock mount. On some models the nut can be accessed from under the hood. On others, the access to the nut is blocked by the ABS modulator. You’ll have to access the nut through the wheel well. Remove the lower nut and bolt of the shock. Remove the shock from the truck. The new PRT shock unit has a precision piston rod that is chromed to ensure proper seal lubrication and resistance to impact and corrosion. The valving inside matches the original unit.

The unit also includes new hardware, including the upper bushings and washers. PRT’s twin tube design includes nitrogen gas charging to keep the shock and strut cooler, and to extend its service life. The nitrogen charge eliminates aeration, which improves driving and handling performance. Install the shock onto the vehicle. Make sure to install the new bushings and washers on the upper stud. Insert the bolt in the lower amount and secure with the nut. Tighten the upper nut to 46 foot-pounds and tighten the lower bolt to 111 foot-pounds. Install the wheels.

Welcome to the Lubegard Limited Slip Supplement overview. Clutch-based limited slip differentials are common on many automotive applications like trucks and SUVs, but they present a unique problem. These differentials often use different clutch configurations, either cone or flat type, made with various materials and frictional requirements. When both wheels have ample traction, the clutch plates bind together tightly, sending consistent power to each wheel. When one wheel slips, additional power is sent to the other wheel based on the frictional properties of the clutch packs. This is where the gear lubricants frictional properties play an important role in functionality and performance.
