I have a renault 19 with the same problem on the passenger side front. It is a straight forward job, you will need two jacks, preferably trolley jacks. It would be alot easier (and cheaper) to completely replace the suspension strut itself rather than squeezing a new spring in. Jack up the car then jack the suspension to a point it will hold suspension in place whilst you undo the bolts etc. Once bolts are undone, SLOWLY release the jack on the actual suspension strut and remove the strut. To replace the strut, put new strut in place jack it up into place carefully so you get it to stay in place. Do up all your bolts, Slowly release jack on suspension strut, then release the other jack holding up the car. I would do this with my car, but i cant be bothered as it has numerous other problems and im scrapping it.

How do i get the check suspention light to stay off put in the spring susention all ready!


It is important that you make sure the compressor is disconnected and that there is no power going to the suspension control module. (This is something that the mechanic who did the spring conversion for you should have done but CHECK FOR YOURSELF.)

Once you have made sure that the compressor is disconnected and the leveling system computer has been disabled, SIMPLY REMOVE THE LIGHT BULB.

Renault Scenic steering stiff to the right and crack noise


hi from uk from the symptoms you clearly describe may i suggest that you have someone to check both visually and physically by feeling the front suspension strut coil springs on both sides this problem sounds very much like you have a broken/cracked coil spring on one of the struts hence the crack ! when turning ? the stiffness is that the coil is broken and is not rotating on the top of suspension bearing as it is supposed to just one point? if this is the fault may i suggest that you change both coil springs at same time ? these can be purchased at good motor factors if you wish to diy or have some motor mechajc friend? do them for you? also check the actual struts for oil leakage as this is common cause of coils breaking due to no damping of strut/shock absorbing of suspension hope this helps ?

Hi, I have a 1995 lincoln continental and it is really really low to the ground. It sounds like the it's rising when I start the car but the rear of the car never rises.


it has an air suspention, and they are known to leak after a couple of years. they are not cheap to replace. this happened in my town car and i just replaced the airbags with springs. sorry

How do i replace a offside front lower suspension arm ball joint


You need to get or rent a ball joint splitter, maybe $20? or so to buy.   Some parts stores (autozone does this, one reason i recommend them, but other stores may also) will rent you some tools for "free" when you buy parts there .. they take a big deposit in case  you bolt ... but give it all back for return of the tool in good condition.  
 It's easy ... if you know how to work on suspension .. if not, get a Haynes manual for your car from part store, amazon or haynes.com for around $20,  the blood and busted knuckles you save due to reading it will be worth the money ;~).
