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!

Jack up the truck let the wheels hang in their suspension - then look put a long strong rod / pipe / plate underneath one wheel and listen for unusual noises when the wheel is lifted. Check for noises when the axle is pressured again by the weight of the truck.
Park the Dodge on a flat, level surface and engage the
parking brake. Put two wedges of wood in front of your front wheels and two
Put the jack under the back frame of the car and lift it up until the wheels are off
the ground. Slide the two jack stands underneath the car right under the axles,
one next to each wheel. Use the jack to lower the car onto the two jack
Loosen the lug nuts with the lug nut wrench, and remove the
lug nuts and the two back wheels.
Look for two bolts that are attached to the caliper. Remove
them with the adjustable wrench. Lift up the caliper and set it on the axle,
taking care not to let it fall and break.
Compress the brake pads which, in turn, will compress the
underlying piston. If they won't budge, use a C-clamp to compress them.
Open the spring clips by prying with a screwdriver and take
off the pads. And if the pads are stuck you can pry them off with the
screwdriver as well.
Rub a little bit of silicone grease onto the back of each new
pad and put the pads in the correct position. Put the spring clips back in place
to hold the pads in place.
Put the caliper back in place and tighten the bolts.
Reinstall the wheel and tighten the lug nuts. Lift up the car
a little with the jack and remove the jack stands. Lower the Dodge all the way
to the ground. Retighten the lug nuts.
Lift up the hood and look for the master cylinder's brake
fluid container on the driver's side of the car, closest to the driver. Top off
the brake fluid, if
If the 95 is anything like the 90, the bolts are right on the flange type part of the starter, where the starter meets the transmisison. there is 3 bolts holding it in. they are most likely 13mm, 14mm, or 15mm bolts. but on some caravan models you have to remove the front transmission mount to get to it. this is probabally why you cant find em'. but you will have to remove the mount, then the starter bolts. then you have your starter out! but when you want to put the mount back in, you may need a floor jack to lift the engine/trans um into the right spot to put the bolt back through the rubber part. Tricky, but possible.
You need to find where the leak is. You don't mention where the coolant is going. You just say everywhere...so...take a look at the water pump, lower end of the block, trans cooler if outside vehicle and heater core if insdie the vehicle.
hi, i always recommend using a lift kit for safety but, you can use a hydraulic floor jack to lift as well. they are really strong and sturdy. i would recommend using one hydraulic floor jack on each axle.
