Question about 2001 Dodge Stratus
I need to know if I have to compress the coil spring to change the strut? And if so how do I do that? Do I need a special tool or can I do it with a jack?
I would not recommend doing it with a jack you may get hurt try to get a spring compressor tool from a rental place
there is allot of pressure in those springs
will the spring flop around if you move it a little if the spring is allready lose and NO pressure on it you can remove it without a spring compressor
