Replacing Shock Absorbers using Isuzu Truck Parts

One key aspect of managing your Isuzu truck fleet is the maintenance and replacement of Isuzu truck parts to keep your trucks operational. If you don’t replace or maintain shock absorbers, your trucks will operate less safely and other truck components will be more at risk due to higher impact loads.

Keep reading as we explore how to replace shock absorbers using Isuzu truck parts and the benefits of choosing aftermarket parts for Isuzu trucks.


Where Can You Find Spare Parts For Isuzu Trucks?

When you invest in Isuzu trucks, you need to purchase spare parts for maintenance to keep your trucks operational and on the road. This requires consideration of the best distribution channel for Japanese truck parts.

Sometimes when you source truck parts from the truck dealer, you can experience longer waiting times and shortages. There are other distribution channels for both OEM and aftermarket Isuzu truck parts. 

OEM truck parts manufacturers seek distribution through aftermarket channels to increase their market share. It is also generally the case that more than one component manufacturer has access to full technical specifications for OEM parts, and alternative aftermarket truck parts can be manufactured to the same high standards. Alternative manufacturers also sometimes use the opportunity to improve the specification of the truck parts with new technology.

The accessibility and affordability of alternative channels for aftermarket Japanese truck parts benefit anyone managing a fleet of Isuzu trucks.


How To Replace Shock Absorbers Using Parts For Isuzu Trucks

You must replace shock absorbers when your Isuzu truck shocks aren’t performing effectively. Collect part numbers from your truck shock absorbers to source your parts to ensure you order correctly. The part number is usually on the outer case of the shock absorbers and is generally easily accessed around the truck suspension. 

To install new Isuzu truck shocks, it is best to use a proper truck pit or hydraulic lift. Using your wrenches, remove any components blocking the shock absorbers and then remove the shock absorbers themselves. Once complete, you can install the new shock absorber by aligning the mounting holes and torque the mounting bolts. 

Before installing any new parts for your truck, you must compare the old and new parts to ensure they are identical. You should also take note of the part’s orientation before disconnecting it, as this will provide guidance for mounting.

After lowering the vehicle, you must test the new shock absorbers by taking the truck for a short drive. 


Final Thoughts

Replacing, maintaining, and restoring parts is essential for your truck fleet. You should record when your parts were last changed or updated, remembering each part’s lifespan to stay up-to-date with your repairs. Being prepared to use alternative channels for aftermarket Isuzu truck parts will help you access parts more quickly when needed.
