SOURCE: I need to change the

Studying the system looks like you do not have to replace any line with the shocks. It is best to replace them one at the time leaving the opposite shock and it's lines in place until you change the one. This keeps fluid from draining out of the lines so there is less fluid needed to fill the reservoir

On a 2004 Dodge Intrepid, where is the strut tower located?


Open the hood, look in the back corners, just in front of the firewall. You will see two cylindrical shapes with three bolts coming out the top (possibly some other items attached). These house the tops of the front struts, called the strut towers. In the trunk are similar towers for the rear struts, but they are normally covered by the trunk liner and not as apparent.

How do i change the front struts on a1995 buick regal grand sport


Use a spring compressor to clamp the spring down (Be Careful). disconnect strut from lower control arm, and the 3 or 4 bolts under the hood ontop of the strut tower. Remove strut and spring, remove spring from strut (Still Compressed), put spring on new strut (Still Compressed), Install bolts under hood, aka strut tower, reconnect lower control arm, slowly uncompress the spring and make sure it seats properly. Take it an alignment shop to get your front end re-aligned.

I have a 2004 Chrysler Pacifica - strut broke and made a hole through the hood of the car - is this an issue with this car


I had this same thing happen to me on the right front. Fortunately I caught mine before it made it through to the outer sheet metal of the hood. I replace the struts and upper mounts to fix.

How do i change rear struts on 2004 camary?


Hello, and welcome to FixYa. I'll be glad to help you out.

When you had the struts replaced, one of two things happened.

one - the rear strut retention bolts were not tightened up properly at the tops of the struts

two- the top supports on the struts were not replaced. Whenever we change the struts, we always replace the top supports. More than likely, this is your problem. The rear strut supports are notorious for wearing out, and, when they do, they make loud banging noises.

2004 Camry rear support part numbers:

Left: 48750-33062
Right: 48760-33062

I would suggest replacing the top supports to cure your problem.

Thank for choosing FixYa for advice!

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.

How to change hood struts 1989 Pontiac Trans Am?


you first have to take off the hood (2 bolts on each side where the hood meets the hinge) then take off the hood hinges (3 or 4 bolts on each side on top of fender) and after all that your hood hinges should be off. on each end there will be a metal retainer that holds the strut on the hinge, carefully pry these off with a screwdriver and install new struts, bolt the hinges back on and finally the hood

(have a friend help you lift the hood off)

Front struts replacement


Jack up and secure front end of your vehicle,Take off two front wheels. Loosen to bolt on the bottom of struts (Its a bolt and nut). Remove clip that holds brake hose on to strut and remove hose. DO NOT OPEN BRAKE LINE OR DISCONNECT FROM CALIPER. Remove bolts and remove bottom of strut from knuckle/Hub assembly. Then loosen nuts on strut tower( on top of fender inside hood) (3) nuts, mark exact locations of each nut on strut mount area on upper fender weld. Make sure to hold strut on the bottom so it doesn't drop down on caliper and knuckle or on you possibly.YOU WILL NEED A SPRING COMPRESSOR to compress spring so you can take struts off. MAKE SURE THAT SPRING IN COMPRESSED/SQUEEZED WITH A STRUT COMPRESSOR. Then loose center nut on strut tower(may be covered with a circular rubber cover) If nut spin around with out getting loose use vise grips to hold strut rod ONLY TO REMOVE STRUT NOT TO INSTALL. if you use vise grips to install it will damage strut. When nut is off, remove strut and reinstall new one transfer all rubber boots and cushions from old strut. Good Luck thanks for using FIX-YA.com contact me if you need more help.
