  • She went limp...

    Well I had my displacer blow out on me a while back. Got her swapped out with another one. If that counts for anything. But the right corner is lower than the other side is. What can I do to fix this? I was thinking about fitting a shim. But not sure if that will work. Also it was like this before the original displacer went out.

    Heres a few pics.

    If It counts for anything the rear and both sitting at the same height.

    Thanks

    Start by having both sides pumped up properly to use as a base line. If the RF is still low I'd suspect the RF knuckle joint. What was it like when you replaced the displacer?

      A magic wand and a bottle of viagra if the knuckle joint doesn't fix it.

        Where exactly is the knuckle located and im guessing it involves pumping down the right side to get to it.

          The knuckle joint is a ball and socket arrangement on all four corners. You had to deal with it when you replaced the front displacer. On the front it is a ball fitting into a plastic/nylon-type cup that in turn fits into the upper arm.
          And, yes, you'll have to depressurize the system to get to it.
