Need to change struts front and rear on 2003 Buick Century

What special tools are needed? What assemblies besides the struts themselves are needed? It does not appear I need the bellows on front struts. What about top mounts? Thank you.

GET A SERVICE MANUAL !!! You'll need a spring compressuer. You can do it but, use care. And use a manual. If not done right you could be injured.

I need to replace my front struts on my 98 Buick park ave I don't have much money to work with what is the best solution and do I need a special tool to replace them


Hello! The best thing to do is go to a well know junkyard that have good condition items. And you need to look at your car to see if you have tools that you can take them off. Don't forget to ask your friends if they have tools and if they can help you.

How to change front struts of 1995 buick regal?


Go to Autozone and buy 2 front strut "cartridges". Then rent their strut cartridge installation tool from their loaner tool program. You can change both sides in about an hour without even jacking the car up-be sure to have a 15/16" wrench on hand for the nut and follow the directions that come with the loaner tool. Also spray a little penetrating oil on the nut a few days before you do the job. There is no reason to change the entire strut assembly unless something has failed.

Need to replace rear shock and strut assembly. I need a diagrahm of parts and any helpful hints.


Parts houses sell a complete assembly now,(spring and strut W/bearing) Much easier to replace the assembly,that way you don't have to compress the spring. Plus that way the factory ride height is restored.Just the 2 bolts at the lower mount and 3 nuts inside the rear cargo area.

I am looking for an exploded view of how rear struts and mounts are installed on a 1999 Buick Century


the struts are very easy to pull off the car, but as to taking the strut apart that is best left to a professional, it requires very expensive special strut cartridge installing fixtures

How to install Mcpherson Struts 1996 Buick Century


The problem is that the springs have to be compressed. Its a dangerous job to do yourself for obvious reasons. I'm pretty sure you could rent a spring compressor from an auto parts store. The strut assembly is attached to the tie rod ends. You will need an alignment for sure.

Personally, I'd be hesitant to do it for those reasons. I'd say if you do it, please be careful that those springs are compressed properly and that you get that alignment after.
