How to change front struts on a 95 Grand Cherokee

Morning jeep forum....

I did a search but didnt really find what i was looking for.
I want to change my front struts and was looking for a how-to post explaining step by step how to do it....
More importantly, is it a pain in the ***???

Can anyone shed some light on this for me?

** sorry i mean shocks***

No struts, just shocks all the way around.

I changed mine on my 94 and didn't even need to jack it up. Remove bolts, insert new shock, and tighten down. Easiest shock change ever!

one nut in the engine compartment, two bolts on the axle tube and that's it

Praise to a Child is like Sunlight to Flowers

Traded away the WJ to get a commuter

We finally got another Jeep after 5 years without. Too bad it's ALL stock.

The one nut on the Driver's side in the engine compartment can be a hassle. If you want, you can to the mod to the Shock loop adapter and the Bull pin eliminator for the bottom of the front shocks. JKS makes these.
