Hello, you are a brave man. Well you need a floor jack, or a good bottle jack to start, jack stands, 18mm deep socket, impact wrench, a 3" extension for you 1/2 or 3/8 tool set, several metric 6 point sockets, regular size. You will also need some open-end wrenches, such a box wrench, a vise grip. If you don't have a impact wrench, a 12volt electric impact wrench, the kind used for removing lug nuts will do. Just be prepared to toss it afterwards, if it is a cheap one. Also a 18" breaker bar, 1/2" size is highly recommended, with a 3/8 adapter for using 3/8 sockets. I hope this helps. Did you blow a air bag, or is one of the solenoid's gone bad?

How to replace the rear springs and what size are brake lines.


rear springs are part of a strut assy, get a quick strut fom o'reilleys or az. it has the spring, strut, mount, all new and ready to pop in, otherwise you will need to tear the strut down and will need special tools. it is also a little risky, springs can fly pretty good when they slide out of compressors

Replacement of rear struts on a 2004 KIA Optima


CHANGING STRUTS REQUIRES A SPECIAL TOOL YOU RENT AT ANY PARTS STORE. THEY ARE NOT BAD FOR SOMEONE WHO KNOWS HOW TO FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS. THE TOOL HAS INSTRUCTIONS AS LONG AS YOU FOLLOW THEM STEP BY STEP, YOU'LL BE FINE. SHOPS MAKE WAY TOO MUCH MONEY ON THAT STUFF. THEY GET A 30-40 PERCENT DISCOUNT ON THE PARTS; THEY CHARGE YOU 15 PERCENT MORE THAN WHAT YOU WOULD PAY; AND THEY CHARGE TOO MUCH FOR LABOR. GET A BOOK NEXT TIME AND RENT THE TOOL. YOU'D BE SURPRISED HOW EASY THEY ARE.

Need to replace rear struts


It depends on who does it. If you are doing it by yourself, I would allow at least a couple of hours on each side, although it should take no more than one per side. If you have air tools and a lift, it should take between an hour or two from start to finish, since removing wheels, bolts etc would be fast. Hope this helps you, Rick
