There is a bolt or bolts at the top of the strut too.... usually you can access them from the truck.... lift up the round plastic covers over top of them.

How to change rear struts 2010 dodge journey


Hi there, I'm Al the owner of Big As Auto Repair

The rear struts on the Journey are very simple to do, and you can do in your garage at home on the floor. First, you'll need a jack and a jack stand to support the axle. NOTE: Do one side at a time! Here we go: Lift the vehicle, support the axle with the jack stand, remove the wheel, take the lower bolt and note off the strut and pull it through the hole. Now take the three bolts out that hold the strut to the body. Next pull downward on the lower control arm that the brakes and everything are mounted on while lifting the strut up and over the control arm and out. VERY IMPORTANT: If you are changing the spring yourself PLEASE do not attempt to do so unless you have the proper equipment and tools to do so because this spring removal is very dangerous. NOTE: If you have bought the complete strut with the spring on it then simple put the new strut on the vehicle. VERY IMPORTANT: When installing the new strut look at the other strut on note how it installs to the vehicle. The upper plate must mount in one direction, by looking at the one still on the vehicle you can mount it properly. If you need any more assistance go to my website below. Have an awesome day!

How do you take out the inner control arm of a 1996 sunfire?


Hi,
Just to be safe take it to an wheel alignment company. It Might be struts. They make bad noises when they go bad, and are more than likely the culprit. It could also be the strut plate, it is the part that the strut bolts to at the top, and it bolts to the car. It allows the strut to turn when you turn the wheel. If it goes bad you will hear a clicking sound when the wheel is turned, and it will clunk around when you hit rough roads or bumps. Only way to check that is to take it to a good alignment shop, tell them what you think it may be. Some models you have to pull the strut to check it all out. Being a '96 it is probably a good guess it could use a set of struts anyway. 2 front struts and alignment.

Changed all 4 struts on 03 cavalier, now the camber is off on the front wheels..


If you put on new struts the bottom bolt hole is oblong for camber adjustments.Where the old struts bottom hole was not. If you put a jack under the lower control arm, jack the wheel off the ground and adjust the struts camber to where the wheel looks straight.And tighten bolts.

Need the tool requirements to change rear struts in 1993 mercury sable sedan


Used to need a spring compressor and disassemble the strut.
Now the parts stores sell a "ready mount strut" that comes with
the spring installed,then you just pull the wheel ,the 3 bolts in the
rear cargo area,and the pinch bolts at the lower control arm,
it's the way to go,takes like an hour to do both sides and you
also get your factory ride height back.

    How do i change rear struts on 2004 camary?


    Hello, and welcome to FixYa. I'll be glad to help you out.

    When you had the struts replaced, one of two things happened.

    one - the rear strut retention bolts were not tightened up properly at the tops of the struts

    two- the top supports on the struts were not replaced. Whenever we change the struts, we always replace the top supports. More than likely, this is your problem. The rear strut supports are notorious for wearing out, and, when they do, they make loud banging noises.

    2004 Camry rear support part numbers:

    Left: 48750-33062
    Right: 48760-33062

    I would suggest replacing the top supports to cure your problem.

    Thank for choosing FixYa for advice!

    I need to know whether I can change the rear struts on my 97 Lumina at home in the garage. My regular mechanic implied that this was not a home think to do and the car would also need a rear alignment....


    Hi Nick , I also am also Lumina owner , the struts should be a snap , it has a spring around the strut, you will need a tool to compress the spring & make it safer to remove the strut assembly , the upper mount has either 2 nuts or 2 bolts holding it to the car , the 2 Lower bolts holding the strut to the spindle/control arm shouldn't have eccentrics in them so the alignment shouldn't change. , do 1 side at a time and make sure you use safety stands.

    On a side note you may be able to purchase a Quickstrut complete strut assembly (Strut/Spring/Upper mount). making your job a lot Faster !

    Change rear gas struts on 98 Buick Lasabre


    No, it isn't...
    You need:
    -20" breaker bar
    -torque wrench
    -Liquid wrench (or WD-40 if you don't have any)
    -Jack and stands
    -sockets to fit all of the connections

    1. Remove the back seat:
    Bottom cushion comes out by pushing it rearwards and lifting, undo the 2 seatbelt bolts and 2 push nuts and remove the back cushion

    2. Jack and support the frame of the car
    3. Remove the wheels
    4. Place a jack under the control arm where the spring connects to it and put a little tension on the spring. (this is so that when you unbolt the strut the control arm won't come crashing down)
    5. Remove the air tube by rotating the spring clip 90 degrees and pulling on the tube at the connector.
    5. Remove the lower strut bolts. (Exprerience shows me that removing the lower one first will save you lots of agony...)
    6. Remove the two strut mounting bolts that are behind the back seat cushion.
    7. Compress the strut and remove from the vehicle.
    8. Installation is opposite of the removal. Remember to use a new mount if the one you are removing is worn. I recommend Quick-strut 171798. Good Luck!

    P.S. Torque Specs are:
    Lower Strut bolts- 140 ft/lbs
    Upper strut bolts- 30 ft/lbs
    Mount to strut bolt - 70ft/lbs
