can the front shocks be replaced with out removing the tire ?
yes,but do you have shocks or strutts.
yes you can change them without removeing the tires.
its going to be a pain in the ***. i dont see why you wouldnt just remove the tire. gives you 1000X the working room
not really,on a jeep.
uh yea on a jeep. your telling me its easier to squeeze both your arms in-between the control arms (upper and lower) and the tire to remove the bolts? when you can simply remove the tire and have room enough to for 2 people if need be. now the rear however may not be a problem doing because the are angled inwards away from the tires.
under hood is the top bolt,the bottom 2 bolts under it is easy to get to because it is connected to bottom of coil spring bracket,so yes replace them with tire on.if it had struts or was a 4x4 that would require tire removal.
