How do I chnage the front and rear shocks in a 2001 4.0

The shocks in the rear just unbolt top and bottom, disconnect the air line and replace them.

Struts are used in the front. You'll need to remove them and then have a spring compressor to change the struts. An alignment check is recommended after the struts are replaced.

How do know if I should replace my struts on my 2001 saturn sl1 with 98000 miles. there is no apparent problem but the repair place i went to said that it was time to replace them.

if the front end bounces allot on the freeway then the struts are worn out, many shops sell struts based on 60,000 miles as the time for out with the old and in with the new, if u feel the car rides well and doesn't bouce excessively then don't replace them, it is very expensive.

How do I replace the struts and shocks

well the rear are easy take the wheel off,,,put a jack under the rear axle on the side you are doing and put tension on the jack to jack it up alittle,remove the 21mm lower shock bolt and the 18mm top shock bolt and release the jack,then remove shock and reinstall new,,,they are easy do the same fo rthe other side and then go to the front,,,take off wheel,,, no jacking up required for front struts,,,remove the two 18mm nuts and bolts that connect the strut to hub and then 18mm nut the holds the sway bar end link to strut,,may may need a vise grip on the back side of the end link to hold it from spinning as they rust fast,then open the hood and hold the strut with one hand thru the wheel well and take the top strut mount nut off under the hood 18mm,watch because the strut will fall in the wheel well so hold it,i would advise using a air gun to do this all other wise youre gonna have a hard time to remove the sway bar end link nuts

I need to replace the rear struts and spings on my 01 sable, Where are the top nuts to loosen for the struts

The bolts are located under the rear deck (where the rear speakers are located) inside the car. First start by opening the fold down rear seats. There you will find 4 bolts holding the rear seat back. Remove them. Pull the seat back forward and lay it down on the rear seat. Next remove the rear deck. There are 2 plastic push-in clips that hold the rear deck. They located toward the front. Pull them out. Now the rear deck can be removed by sliding forward towards the front of the car. Under the rear deck is insulation which can be lifted out. Under the insulation are the bolts for each strut. Remove these bolts and the strut can be pulled out.
