SOURCE: How to change front struts

There isn't online repair information available from, for the 2004 Dodge Stratus, so the best bet is to try to get your own repair manual from Haynes or Chilton or even the manufacturer of the vehicle, in order to find out how to do it.

SOURCE: How to replace rear strut

If you are asking this question, you are without the necessary tools and skill to do the job. This is much more involved than removing a tire or swapping an alternator. Do yourself a favor, do not get in over your head and end up having it towed to a shop. Go to ebay and find a pair of rear "quick struts" for the car. This way you save a lot on the part, you do not have old spring sag, and you do not have to have the mechanic try and explain why you need to spend more money on a mount. Call around to various shops, which also do alignments, and ask them how much to install your struts and do a 4 wheel alignment. Go with the cheapest price.

SOURCE: replacement of front struts on

Hi, to remove follow this instruction

  • Raise the front end of the van and secure it on jack stands, then remove the wheel for the struts being replaced. If you are removing both struts and will be re-installing the same ones, mark the left and right strut with chalk or washable paint.
  • Disconnect and remove the brackets connecting the brake hose and the speed sensor cable to the strut bracket. Disconnect the stabilizer bar from the strut assembly with a Torx wrench and 40 IP bit; use a flare nut wrench on the link stud to keep it in place while turning.
  • Remove the bolts connecting the strut assembly to the steering knuckle. Remove the nuts connecting the strut assembly's upper mount to the strut tower; these nuts are accessible from underneath the hood. Lower and remove the strut assembly from its tower; this might take an assistant's help due to the weight.

To Install
  • Raise and push the strut assembly into its strut tower and make sure its upper studs poke through the holes at the top of the tower. Have an assistant hold the strut in place and install the nuts on the studs, tightening them to 21 foot pounds.
  • Align the steering knuckle with the strut assembly, placing the knuckle's arm into the strut assembly bracket. Align the mounting holes for both the assembly bracket and steering knuckle and install the bolts, tightening them to 65 foot pounds and then an additional 90 degrees.
  • Install the stabilizer bar onto the strut assembly's bracket. Tighten the nut connecting the two to 65 foot pounds. Install the brackets connecting the brake hose and speed sensor cable to the strut assembly brackets.
  • Reconnect the wheels and lower the vehicle.

What year models interchange with driveshaft 2004 Chevy Silverado 1500

Any 1999 or older model Silverado will interchange with the 2004. To be sure would need to know if you are looking for front or rear. If the front is for 6 lug wheel AWD, 6 lug w/o AWD, 8 lug. But either way all 1999-2004 will work.

I need help replacing rear struts on a 2004 dodge stratus sedan

jack up the car and take off the wheel. go through the trunk and remove the trunk liner from the wheel well area. remove the two nuts off either of the center, dont remove the center one yet. now you remove the bolt from the bottom of the strut and remove the strut assy. you can buy new struts as a complete assy. or you will have to use a spring compressor and compress the spring until it is loose from the spring pad, then remove the nut from the top of the strut and it comes apart. a lot of times the rear mount goes bad on these cars and it makes noise on the bumps. it doesnt mean the strut is bad. you can check the strut by pushing the rod in and pulling it out, there should be steady resistance. any easy spots and the strut is no good. gas struts should fully extend by themselves from the gas pressure, if they dont, they are bad.
