Is this supposed to be a trick question? IF she's still running, I guarantee they're SHOT. Struts in front...and spring preload shocks in the rear. Check Sears for sales on replacement struts and then hit them up when they have a labor 1/2 off sale.
Good Luck
P.S. you DO NOT need an alignment they'll try to sell you!

Does a 94 olds cutlass supreme have rear shocks or struts?


it is considered a strut on the rear even though it doesn't have a coil spring wrapped around it. it bolts to the rear spindle and goes through the rear of the body. the car will need to be re-aligned if you replace them.

Does the 97 vw golf gl 2.0 have 4 struts for suspension or is it struts in the front and shocks in the back?


struts in the front and shocks in the rear, the rear shocks have coil springs over the shocks, like the front struts, but you dont need to use a spring compressor tool on them which is neccessary on struts

I need shocks, they have never been replaced in 107K miles. Does this car have 4 shocks or 2 shocks and 2 struts


Thr front will be MacPherson struts, a shock absorber surrounded by a coil spring looking set-up.


FOR THE REAR:
If you have front wheel drive and you have Electronic Ride Control (ERC), then the rear suspension has "super lift air shocks".

If you have all wheel drive, then you have struts in the rear suspension.

Does help any?

Bmw 750 iL, 1996, suspension real hard, front end sitting much to high, help!


being 1996 750 4.8 litre fairly heavy car, I wouldn't doubt the car would need new struts/shock replacement all around. front tend to go out first before the rear because of extras weight of the motor, you can feel the ride more spongy going over bumps, poor handing when cornering and once awhile you can hear the metal hitting metal. have all coil springs also check, some get weaken and will make the car sit higher on one side or front sit higher than the rear or which ever. I would have the coil spring check and replace all shocks/struts you be surprise the car will ride as it was new, suspension has allot to do with comfort and handling. If you have to replace the shock/struts, get an estimate first from your local shop for the price of 4 shocks and then shop on ebay first to see if you can do a bit of saving, don't forget including your shipping also including into the cost. any garage will out it in for you.

I need to know how to put rear struts on a 96 olds cutlass supreme, ( instructions)


I just had to do this to my cutlass supreme. It is fairly easy. First, you need to jack the car up in the rear (but dont forget to put wheel chocks in front of the front wheels to prevent any chance of rolling, and break all of the lug nuts loose while the car is still on the ground, and put jack stands under it to keep the car raised safely) and remove the rear wheels. Then look at where the strut mounts to the wheel, there are two bolts holding it on the wheel assembly; remove those (you may need to jack ut the suspension to remove the bolts). Now locate the two smaller bolts to each side of the the strut itself on the strut mount, holding it to the car (this is located at the very top of the wheel well) and remove them. Now u can compress the strut by hand and wiggle it free from the car. Once u have the old strut out, remove the large nut that is securing the strut to the mount. In some cases this is impossible to do due to the rust that has binded them together. If this happens, you will need to purchase a new strut mount for your new strut. AutoZone seems to be the cheepest place for parts. To install the new struts just do everything backwards. When the new struts are installed, the wheels may be slanted down. If this is the case, do not worry, they just need time to "relax" or be broken in. I hope everything goes smoothly and i wish you luck.

Remove and replace rear struts


then they are not struts they are just regular shock absorbers, struts are where the coil spring and shock are assembled as one piece, the struts are in the front only
