Firs thing is you need to get a spring compressor and working with one of these tools is dangerous. If it is not secured right the spring can expand and fly right through the car or you. after you have installed the spring compresser and locked it down. you can remove all the attaching parts to remove the strut. If you have any doubts you may be better off taking it to a tech so that the job is warranteed.

I have a 2004 Saturn ION 3 QC, my husband has replaced the struts and cv joints with new seals and now there is a transmission fluid leak on the drivers side- did the seal not seat correctly?


That is a very strong possibility, however I think that your husband would have made certan that the seal was seated propperly. So all you can do is change the seal again. Make sure you inspect the cv shaft where the seal rides for any vissable damage sharp cut marks, dents or scrapes. Also lubricate the in side of the seal with some grease upon installation. Take care when slidding the cv shaft into place so no damage can occure to the seal. Good Luck, From Ernie @ RedDeer, Alberta, Canada.

Because of Popping noise I replaced the struts. The popping noise is still there, it appears to be the bar that is attatched to the strut popping on the connection below the strut. What is that bar called?


The sway bar is connected to the strut via the sway bar link pins which very commoonly go bad and make popping,rattling,and clunking type noises

Hello, i have a 2004 saturn ion quad coupe, and i shiped it overseas to use it. saturn doesnt exist in the middle east so there is no parts, i asked alot n people say that SATURN has the same OPEL parts....


Good question, the answer is "yes", "no", and "maybe". GM shares a lot of parts internationaly with Opel, Saturn, GM, Chevy, Pontiac, etc. Especialy engine parts. Chassis and body is a different story. You may find tie rods, struts, etc the same, but a headlight won't fit from one to the other. If you've got a 2004 Saturn Ion, you likely have a 2.2 EcoTec. Pretty much all EcoTec parts will fit in one form or another, from one to another. Alternators, starters, etc. You may need to swap plug locations or types, but the actual hard part should "fit". You would need to go dumpster diving to compare or contrast. I guess it all depends on what you need? the Stick

Are my struts out on my 04 Saturn ION?


I agree. I see sway bar links go bad and make nosie much more often than struts on Ion's. Take it to a service center you trust.
