Re: broken rear coil springs on my 98 escort
Its NOT difficult but you would need a SPRING compressor. This tool can be rented from an AUTO ZONE when you return this tool you will get you money back. You just have to compress spring and remove shock absorber and replace in the opposite. Good luck and contact if you need more help. Thanks for using FIX YA

1992 Toyota Celica is not equipped with front "shocks". This vehicle is equipped with front wheel drive and independent MacPherson strut front suspension. Any repairs made to this system requires the removal of the entire strut assembly, which includes the strut, the coil spring and upper strut bearing assembly.
Replacement of any of the parts of the strut assembly requires the use of specialized equipment designed to compress and hold the coil spring to relieve the tension on the strut and upper bearing assembly.
Any attempt to disassemble the strut assembly without the proper equipment for compressing and securely holding the coil spring can result in SERIOUSINJURY or DEATH.
Its simple to unbolt them,but then you will need to go to your locale parts house that has a loaner tool program,and get strut spring depressors,with these special tools it is no big problem,Spring depressor fits on coils of spring and will hold spring depressed while you take center nut off and change strut.
If you have a broken coil spring then you shouldn't drive the car at all. Driving with the coil missing can cause lots of damage to the rest of your suspension system. The Ford Taurus is pretty bad about breaking these springs. They tend to rust up pretty bad and fail as the cars age. Have your car towed into the shop. This repair will probabaly cost you a few hundred dollars unless you know a mechanic who can do it for you. You need specialized equipment to get the new spring back on the strut. This is a highly dangerous job to the unexperienced mechanic.
I have a 1998 Deville and both rear coil springs are broken.. It also has the air shocks that I dont think work.. Can I put regular shocks in and is there a after market coil spring out there for it ??
