I just Brought A 1995 Montero SR . The back of the truck bounces up and down. I can push the Back Up and Down with no problem it's really soft. I'm not to familiar with suspension. Could It be just the shocks? Or does It have springs that need to be replaced also? any Special suspension parts with the adjustable suspension?

Ps The search Feature doesn't work to well On This site. But It's free so I can't complain <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/kewl.gif" alt="" />

Does it have the 3 way adjustable suspension option? There must be something wrong with the shocks.

How many miles are on it?

LOL, No offense but I can almost guarantee it's operator error unless something strange is going on. The search feature does work very well, but you have to use the correct syntax and if you don't it's alot tougher to find what you're looking for.

If you did use the correct syntax then it's likely cause it hasn't been discussed.

As for the 95 SR shocks, it's probably the OE adjustable shocks which are $$$$ and only available as a mitsu part. They were originally made by KYB (from my understanding) and work exceptionally well and are pretty highly regarded by most on this forum.

No Offense taking. I'm on a couple of other Boards And I seem To have no problem With the search Button It just seems Like This On Is harder.
Is they a way to bypass the electronic suspension? And Just put regular shocks back there?

As for the search feature, what search terms did you use and how did you enter them? For all you know you entered everything correctly and what you searched for didn't exist, but of course the words you searched for will have alot to do with it.

As for the shocks... I imagine you could. Don't see why not anyway. I'd put non-oe shocks back in and disconnect the wires going into the shocks and tie the wires up and out of the way (in case you decide to change your mind later down the line and get a set of OE adjustables).

I have a 93 SR I changed to regular shocks. The adjustables still adjusted, but still sucked. I guess they were just old. To replace the adjustables, just unbolt old shocks and bolt on new ones and take the wire harness and adjuster off. A couple of the top bolts 8mm i think were hard to reach. The replacment shock will be 4 times easier to install than taking off old shock. 18 times easier if the old shock is rusted on. If you need further assistance let me know.


I just want to tell you both good luck, and we're all counting on you.

Thanks Sparkman For all the Help. I just replaced the shocks It took me about an Hour to Do. You gave me all the Info I needed Even down to the Correct Wrench Sizes I didn't even Have to dig In My Tool Box. My Passenger side shock Was Broken It wasn't even Connect At the top. I replaced them with Some basic Monroe's.Thanks 4X4Wire
