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.

SOURCE: Front Strut Bushings

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.

SOURCE: Needs front struts

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.

SOURCE: front shocks/struts not attached at top mount,

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

Front right coil spring has slipped below spring perch, need to correct. I need to take apart, looking for a detailed diagram, and reassemble. Can this information be obtained?


This usually happens when the spring has broken. You'll have to remove the upper 3 nuts that hold the strut mount to the body, and the bolt that goes through the lower control arm that mounts the strut, also the sway bar end link, then remove the spring and strut as an assembly. You'll need a spring compressor to safely remove and install the new spring. It is always recommended that you replace the front springs as a pair (both side). This job may be better left to a pro unless you have some experience, also you may be able to buy a product called "quickstruts" They are sold as a spring and strut completed assembly so you won't require a spring compressor.

Hope this helps,
Dave

Help replacing the front struts on 89 VW Cab


You'll need to remove the upper strut mount nut. Unbolt the 2 bolts from strut to the wheel hub. Remove the strut unit from the car. You'll need a coil spring compressor to compress the spring to unscrew the strut bushing, remove the strut mount and remove the spring from the strut, install the spring to the new strut and reassemble. You'll be better off to get the whole strut, instead of the replacement cartridge, it's often hard to remove the old one from the old housing. Don't forget to replace the strut mount and strut bushing.

Rear suspension froze up. Trying to find a diagram of the suspension


the old elantras and accents have problems with the struts siezing up; especially if the vehicle has been lifted/jacked recently.

i see at least a few elantras/accents at the shop every week with locked up struts, its very very common. i am a hyundai tech, so trust me i see this a lot.
to replace the struts you will need a spring compressor and common hand tools.

check the front struts as well, they all tend to go around the same time, push down on one corner of the car at a time, if the car does not come back up after you release pressure, the strut has siezed/locked up.

DO NOT attempt to replace the struts if you dont have a spring compressor...that spring can really mess your day up if you dont properly compress it before removing that top nut.

Front struts replacement


Jack up and secure front end of your vehicle,Take off two front wheels. Loosen to bolt on the bottom of struts (Its a bolt and nut). Remove clip that holds brake hose on to strut and remove hose. DO NOT OPEN BRAKE LINE OR DISCONNECT FROM CALIPER. Remove bolts and remove bottom of strut from knuckle/Hub assembly. Then loosen nuts on strut tower( on top of fender inside hood) (3) nuts, mark exact locations of each nut on strut mount area on upper fender weld. Make sure to hold strut on the bottom so it doesn't drop down on caliper and knuckle or on you possibly.YOU WILL NEED A SPRING COMPRESSOR to compress spring so you can take struts off. MAKE SURE THAT SPRING IN COMPRESSED/SQUEEZED WITH A STRUT COMPRESSOR. Then loose center nut on strut tower(may be covered with a circular rubber cover) If nut spin around with out getting loose use vise grips to hold strut rod ONLY TO REMOVE STRUT NOT TO INSTALL. if you use vise grips to install it will damage strut. When nut is off, remove strut and reinstall new one transfer all rubber boots and cushions from old strut. Good Luck thanks for using FIX-YA.com contact me if you need more help.

Diagram of how to change 2003 front struts


You will need a strut compressor to do change them out. I would strongly recommend not taking them apart yourself. You can take them off the car, and have a shop swap the springs over, but you could send the strut through the car/ceiling/or worse your head if you attempt it yourself. If you still need to know how to remove the strut, sign up for an account on hmaservice.com. You have to use internet explorer, go to "shop", then choose the car and you're set. And best of all, its FREE.
