Question about 1996 Buick Century
I've never installed struts, but I have done a lot of mechanical work and have all the necessary tools. Should I just buy a "Chilton's" book for that year Buick Century? I know those books are not always real clear with their instructions.
The problem is that the springs have to be compressed. Its a dangerous job to do yourself for obvious reasons. I'm pretty sure you could rent a spring compressor from an auto parts store. The strut assembly is attached to the tie rod ends. You will need an alignment for sure.
Personally, I'd be hesitant to do it for those reasons. I'd say if you do it, please be careful that those springs are compressed properly and that you get that alignment after.
