Rear Shock Leaking

Recommended Posts

I have 2006 GX470 with 75k miles. The right rear shock is leaking. I realize that on vehicles with non adjustable shocks it ia always advisable to replace both shocks. Is it permissable/safe to replace just this single shock (at $600 plus) or must I replace both shocks? Anyone had this experience?

i would just replace the one. With my experience, they will both go but at different times sometimes 3 years apart but sometimes within the same year. I bet it is the right one, that one usually goes first. If you were taking a long road trip, I would do both.
