Front strut replcement 2006 buick lacross


Jack up and support the vehicle on the sub frame. Remove the wheels. Unbolt the strut to knuckle bolts. Unbolt the strut mount from the strut tower (3 13mm head bolts) Remove the strut assembly.

It your replacing with "quick struts" reinstall and have the alignment done.

If your just replacing the strut you will need to bring the old strut assemblies to a shop to have the springs compressed. Once the springs are compressed the strut nut can be removed from the strut and the strut can be replaced.

DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REMOVE THE STRUT NUT FROM THE STRUT WITHOUT COMPRESSING THE SPRINGS. YOU WILL HURT YOURSELF.

Does a 2001 buick lesabre have shocks ? if so how much does it cost to replace?


Ok first of all your car has shocks in the rear and they are not very hard to replace or terribly expensive. The front has what they call struts which in effect are shocks with a springs wrapped around them as an assembly. Replacing struts can be expensive and will probably need to be changed by a shop if you are not equipped to do it yourself. You will most likely need to get the wheels aligned as well. I recommend calling around to different shops for a price. My guess for new front struts installed plus the alignment is $300-$400.

Is it expensive to fix the struts


You can get just the strut for about $60.00 each but then you will need special tools to compress the spring to change the strut. You can buy ready to install strut/spring assemblies but they are about $200.00 each. If your giong to have it done at a shop, then I would think it would be cheaper to pay for the "ready to install" units. that way the labor costs will be lower.

I have an 88 toyota corolla hatch and new struts are way too expensive. I would like to know the proceedure for repairing the existing struts.


removing, rebuilding, and replacing the struts would be more
expensive than installing new ones. buy new struts on ebay, quik struts if you can find them as they include new springs and upper mounts, then pay an alignment shop to put them in and align the car. you can save a few hundred bucks over a parts store or paying retail for the parts through a shop.

Need new struts on my 97 Nissan Maxima . Do the


No, usually struts come without springs. Some aftermakets are available as complete assembly with strut, sping, and mount. This is the best way to buy if you doing them yourself. A little more expensive but you are replacing everything and will not have to take them to a shop to have spings changed over. I would not attempt to do this yourself even with rented sping compressor because it is extreamly dagerous. Strut spings can kill you, play it safe. Good Luck

Shocks or struts?


I have 161,000 on my 00 Runner. Have had the shocks/struts changed TWICE.... (thats cause I have FUN with mine over the years) Personally, I would go with what the dealership says, then just replicate that at a good shop for cheaper price.

Sturt and Mounts


As far as driving without having a front end alignment done AFTER the strut replacement, you should head to a shop and have a front end alignment done. You MAY notice some vibrating or tire wear if not taken care of.

Looking at your struts online, the boot comes with the struts. All you have to do is drop yours and replace with the new!
