both my rear shocks have a crack in them? is this just the cover or is this something i need to worried about? and how big of issue is this?

i also got around to painting my fenderwells today sence my boss isnt working today. i just got the rears done because i ran out of paint. they look so glossy bc i just took the pic aftr i put some clear coat on.

It's been a long time since I worked with my shocks, are the shocks themselves cracked or are those just dust boots? How many miles are on your shocks?

144k? I had to replace mine at 100k. Those dust boots generally shouldn't just crack unless the car is putting enough weight on them (shocks that are working properly shouldn't allow that). You should look into replacing the shocks and the dust boots. Check on your struts as well if they've got just as many miles on them.

oh and what shocks/struts would you recommend from AM or somewhere else? do you think i would need new springs to? everytime i got to my exhaust shop and ask they say no it looks good. but they have alot of miles on them

just replaced my shocks at 110K yesturday. I think they need to be replaced. Dust boot's don't just crack unless the car is slamming down on them

What did you clean the fenderwells with prior to painting? One thing I hate is having to jack up the car and removing these 2 ton wheels that I have! Lol
