Question about 1997 Dodge Avenger
Always a good idea to start by disconnecting battery. For front, raise it up, remove the wheel & sway bar connector from the dampner fork. You have to remove both the upper pinch bolt and the lower damper through bolt. You have to go under the hood to remove the (3) upper strut bolts, just dont remove the big spring center nut. With both the top and bottom removed, you should be able to slide the strut out. Then you can r & r the coil spring assy, just keep everything in the same position as it was removed.
The rears, you have to jack up and block the car because you are going to also have to take the weight off of the axle by jacking it up. Of course remove the wheel- You have to go inside the car because the top mouning nuts are under the ft rear package shelf covers.will have to remove speakers & top package shelf & the covers over the nuts (2 of them). (you do have the car blocked & the axle slightly raised at this point dont you? cause you dont want to remove these nuts until you do . Now you can remove the lower strut mounts and slide it out. Again, you will have to r/r the coil spring assy with a spring compresser & be sure to put things back in the same orientation. hope this helps, rick
