My 2006 Laredo has been diagnosed with first a leaking front shock absorber, then changed to a front strut, when I took it to a different dealer I was told it does not have struts and it is a shock absorber. Who do I trust. thanks

It has a shock absorber but it has the spring attatched to it, so it probably looked like a strut if you look fast.

    Steering not responding well


    Automobiles: 2006-2007 Ford Five Hundred 2WD & AWD, Montego

    If the steering is getting a little hard to turn at low speeds, this would indicate a loss of Power Steering, and the steering is reverting to "Non-Power" steering, just like the days of the Ford Model T or Model A. Loss of power steering is usually caused by low level of PSF (Power Steering Fluid).
    So first on my checklist would be checking the PSF level in the reservoir.
    Also bleed (air) from PS (Power Steering) pump.

    The Ford Five Hundred has front MacPherson struts, so check these for leakage (of the dampening fluid in the strut cylinder), or breakage of their coil springs.
    These springs can actually weaken over time, but this is impossible to see - you must "feel" it by bouncing the strut up & down - preferably with your hands on the top of the strut tower in the engine compartment (rather than on the exterior finish).
    If the MacPherson struts have weak/broken springs, these components are not separately serviceable, and the strut would have to be replaced as a unit (and preferably both left/right to maintain smooth/even ride).

    The Five Hundred also has rear shock absorbers with springs - check for leaks/breakage/weakness here too.

    Steering losing responsiveness/wander - checklist
    Priority Action Part Type Cause
    1 Inspect Rack & Pinion - Center Wear From Internal Fluid Leaking Around The Rack Piston.
    2 Inspect Steering Stabilizer Bracket - Loose or Broken Steering Stabilizer Bracket.
    3 Inspect Front Lower Control Arm - Front Lower Control Arm loose/missing bolt(s)
    4 Inspect Front Lower Ball Joints - Front Lower Ball Joint(s) Worn/Loose
    5 Inspect Front Upper Ball Joints -Front Upper Ball Joint(s) Worn/Loose
    6 Inspect Tire Pressure - Tire Pressure should be 35 PSI for the Five Hundred and Montego's P225/55R18 OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) tires.

    Harsh ride - checklist

    1 Inspect Rear Shock/Strut - Shocks/Strut failing/leaking.
    2 Inspect Front Shock/Strut - Shocks/Strut failing/leaking.
    3 Inspect Coil Spring - Incorrect Coil Spring Selection or Installation.
    4 Inspect Coil Spring - Coil Spring broken.

    Of course this is only the cartridge, you have to transfer the spring, and the top mount of the existing strut. You need a pair of coil spring compressor to do the job. The basic procedure to replace a strut is:
    Remove the top nuts that secure the strut assembly to the frame mount inside the engine compartment. Do not remove the center nut.
    Mark the lower strut mounting location on the hub for installation reference. The alignment will be close if the new strut is installed in the same position.
    Remove the bolts that hold the strut assembly to the hub.
    Remove the strut assembly from the vehicle.
    Mark the top mount for installation reference. Using a side mounted spring compressor, compress the spring and remove the top nut and retaining washer. Pull strut assembly out from the bottom of spring.
    Slide the new strut assembly up into the spring and reposition the top mount onto the spring in the same position that it was removed. Install the retaining washer and top nut.
    Tighten the top nut to the manufacturer's specifications and carefully remove the spring compressor.
    Place the strut assembly back into the vehicle.

    Does This Car Have Rear "Struts" Or Shocks?? What Is the Difference?


    THe 93 Mazda has both actually. The shock absorber in this car is just one component of the so called strut assembly. Read on if you want the details: Shock absorbers are simple suspension dampers that control the unwanted spring motion of the vehicle's frame caused by the suspension's springs. Struts, or strut assemblies, basically does the same thing, although they are used on a different type of suspension system and performs another function, which is to provide support for the suspension system.

    A strut assembly is composed basically of a shock absorber unit, a coil spring, an upper pivot, and a lower control arm. A lot of vehicles today make use of strut assemblies instead of simple shock absorbers for the suspension system. The most popular of these strut assemblies is the MacPherson Strut for the front suspension and its rear suspension counterpart, the Chapman Strut.

    Mazda vehicles are well known for their sporty looks and performance, amazing a lot of auto critics when they accelerate on paved streets and highways. Mazda vehicles, however, also has the capability of running on an off-road track without affecting the comfort that Mazda passengers feel; thanks a lot to the high quality Mazda struts they are equipped with. Original Mazda struts are guaranteed to provide every Mazda passenger a pleasurable ride, whatever kind of trail they may choose to traverse.
