Front Shock Replacement?
2001 Dodge Dakota 2WD w/ 20,000 miles.
The right front shock is leaking oil. I have 3 questions.
1). Can I replace it by myself at home? I don't have a spring compressor but do have other usual tools and I've done other automotive works at home (like replacing detonated pistons on a small engine).
2). Should I replace the other side shock that is not leaking?
3). Should I buy OEM Mopar shocks or aftermarket if prices are similar? What aftermarket brand do you recommend if I'm pulling a boat trailer with this truck?
Thanks for your input.
ps. It is little disappointing that it's already leaking at 20K miles. But 5 years old...
