Question about 2000 Chrysler Sebring
I need a diagram on removal of the front strut.
Posted by Anonymous on
Most new struts come with diagram you can purchase just the strut or the complete assembly. Recommend complete assembly and replace both sides and have an front end alignment done after installation. If doing your self use caution with compression tool. This tool can also be rented at auto parts store.

He's probably talking about upper strut mounts/bearing plates or the rubber bumpstops under them. Either way, the strut assemblies have to be removed and dis-assembled to replace them. So he is probably figuring on replacing these items as well as the struts themselves, since everything is already apart. unless the van has very, very low miles. I would double check the front sway bar links though. These cause noise on bumps similar to a strut mount, and are notorious for premature failure. Moog makes them with grease fittings to get batter life. Both sides can usually be replaced for around $250 for parts and labor. When I do have one with bad strut mounts, I usually go ahead and figure worst case. I figure struts, upper mounts/bearing plates, bump-stops and bellows, and the sway bar links on any T&C with over 60K. Usually runs between $750 - $850 for parts and labor (including alignment) with a labor rate of $74.50 per hour. If it is your struts and not just the sway bar links, you can drive it for a while before they have to be replaced. Another option is complete strut assemblies from Monroe or KYB. They are completely assembled with all new parts and you can bolt them in youself to save come money. It takes all the specialty tools out of the job. This can be accomplished at home with simple hand tools in the driveway! Either way, check the sway bar links. If in doubt, replace them.

This is not a job for the novice. If you do get through the repair withour being injured, you will still have to go have your car aligned.
This is dangerous ... working with many unknown forces. If you are bent on doing this repair ... at least get to the library and read up on what you are up against.

you will need to get spring compressors to do the job and if they rusted away chances are the strut shaft nut is rusted too and will need heat from a torch or a powerful air tool to remove it . but if you want to try it first you jack the car and remove the wheel.then unbolt the two large bolts that hold it to the knukle at the bottom,brake hose might be attached to it also remove it .then unbolt the four bolts at the top that hold it and remove the strut. now you will need a strut compressor to squeeze the spring so that the mount is free of pressure from the spring,replace it with the new one careful to install the spring into the seat just like it was.reverse install
