Mandatory Replacement Parts for HIMARS Shock AbsorbersPosted: 2013/21/11
The HIMARS’ TM 9-2300-310-14&P doesn’t list any mandatory replacement parts criteria for the front shock absorbers. As a result, there’s a chance the front frame rails could be bent over the rubber bumper on the front leaf spring.
So the following parts must now be replaced every time the front shock absorbers are removed or replaced:
|3||M16 cap screw||5305-01-369-8253|
In addition, the shock absorbers, NSN 2510-01-372-4839, must now be replaced as part of the biannual services.
This information will be added to TM 9-2300-310-14&P.
