If the strut comes up inside the mudguard into the engine compartment and there are 3 nuts around the hole the those 3 bolts are the ones which change the castor /camber/ . undo then , lift the car so that they go down inside the holes and turn then 1 space and refit . They are made in a elipse so by turning that plate around the top of the strut moves for alignment. I suggest that you have it done professionally as it will cost tyres if you get it wrong.

SOURCE: aggravated front tire wear (outer edges)

Well even though the toe is recommended to be straight ahead can toe it out a 1/16th of an inch and that will help with tire wear on the outer edges and even if vehicle is in good alignment you should rotate your tires front to back and back to front every 5,000-7,500 miles that helps them wear longer to.

How can I correct camber of -1.17?


castor/camber adjustment is by rotation the mounting bolts at the top of the inner guard
the top mount is eccentric and by undoing the nuts of the bolts and pulling the top mount down and rotating the mount so that the bolts are positioned in new holes , the camber/castor is altered
Normally there is sufficient adjustment to meet the + requirement so if your measurement is from other than suspension replacement I would have it inspected by a front end specialist shop for a bent axle or bent axle support arm

How much will be cost repair camber on right site for astra 2009


this can be done by a wheel alignment. IF it has a strut that is mounted in the inner guard and held in by 3 /4 bolts then these bolts are eccentric a by turning the top one hole set at a time will alter the castor and the camber.. If you do not have that suspension then the wheel aligner mechanic will be able to do it for the cost of a wheel alignment.

How to replace upper control arm on 96 accura intrega


THIS is the correct way:

Jack up the car and put it securely on jack-stands. Next, take the tire off. At this point, you'll want to put your jack under the outside end of the lower control arm. When you remove the bottom bolt for the strut, the whole assembly will want to drop. Without support you wont be able to remove the strut because it's pinched in the suspension. (I've held the wheel assembly up with one arm and wiggled the strut free with the other. Trust me, you don't want to do it that way.) You get the ability to adjust it up or down depending on what you need it to do. Next, remove the nut and bolt securing the strut to the lower control arm. Now it's time to open the hood and loosen the 3 - 10 mm nuts and spring washers that hold the strut in on top. (Do not loosen the very center nut on top EVER without a SPRING COMPRESSOR in place and tight!) Next, remove the nut and bolt securing the strut to the lower control arm. (now is when you might need to lower the jack under the knuckle a little.) The strut (and spring assembly) should come out nice n easy once you remove the 3 nuts on top. Hold the strut with one hand and remove the nuts with the other. Be ready. It's heavier than it looks. (Angle the bottom toward the rear of the vehicle and it should drop out.) Once that's out, back in the engine compartment on the motor side of the strut tower (the one for the strut you just took out) there are 2 large nuts on shiny silver studs that point at the motor. Loosen to turn-by-hand tight but don't remove them all the way. Now remove the cotter pin from the bottom of the upper ball joint and remove the castle nut. Use a ball joint fork if it wont separate from beating upwards with White rubber mallet. Once that's apart, just remove the loosened nuts on the side of the strut tower and the upper control arm should drop right out. Reassembly is all this in reverse order.

I have a 1999 Kia Sephia with manual transmission and no power steering. Even for a car without power steering, turning the wheel, especially on turns, is very difficult. What can be causing this?


Have a wheel alignment done to check castor and camber angles. The bearing at the top of the strut may be seized and instead of turning on the shaft it is trying to wind up the coil spring. Have this check while at the wheel aligners.

Hi i have a 1997 3.2 x300 model do i need to drop the front axle to get the top bushes bolt out


As far as I am aware, you need to disconnect strut at bottom (moving any brake pipes first) remove bolts on top of strut (except centre one on strut itself) you should then be able to drop the strut out, replace bush, refit strut securing at top first, then secure bottom of strut and replace any pipes you have moved.
You may have to turn your wheel (brake disc) to get it out and be careful not to damage any collars or sleeves. Hope that helps, Jonjo.

Replace coil spring


You have to remove them - that "block" is the upper strut-to-body mounting section and serves as the upper seat for the spring as well as the anchor for the top of the strut. You need to take those four 17mm bolts out, as well as the rear upper sway bar bolt, the upper control arm bolt (at the top of the hub), and the bottom bolt on the strut, where it goes through the lower control arm. You'll then have to compress the spring enough to take the bolt out of the "block" (it goes through sideways, and I believe is 19mm on the bolt head as well as the nut). At this point, you can slide the spring/strut out of the block, decompress the spring, pull out the strut, and install a new spring over the strut. Recompress enough to get the top of the strut visible through the anchor bolt hole in the block, rebolt it, decompress the spring, and reinstall the assembly in the car. Usually when you go to reinstall it, the bottom of the strut is not angled quite right once the top four 17mm bolts are back in and the block is secured to the body. I put a large screwdriver through the lower strut bolt hole at the bottom of the strut and use that to turn it, or I grab the weld near the bottom of the strut with large ChanneLock pliers and turn it until it's aligned with the control arm properly. Once it is, put the lower bolt back in, rebolt the control arm and sway bar, and you're good to go.

Note - this job will not affect alignment specs - you don't remove any bolts used in aligning the car, so that's not a concern when doing this repair.

Replace front strut


You will need a strut spring compressor. You can probably buy a cheap one for about as much as a shop would charge you to install a new spring on your strut.

Sometimes you can even "borrow" these from your local parts store with a deposit.

It is probably faster to do it yourself than bring it to a shop.

You need to compress the spring before you put it in the strut housing. Directions should be included with the spring compressor kit.

Here's the general directions:

Take the two bolts on the bottom off

There may be a bolt holding the brake line in place (remove it)

Take the three bolts on the top off

The strut assembly should be free now.

Pull strut assembly out and set it on the floor

The top nut holds the top bearing plate and that holds the spring in place.

Remove the top nut

Remove old broken spring

Compress new spring and put it in place on the strut

Put strut top plate on and secure locknut

Release spring compressor.

Reinstall strut assembly in car.


Good Luck!

Heating bolts for removal


Let's see. The lower bolts would be the strut to steering knuckle. Two 21mm bolts, commonly known as the "Camber Adjustment" bolts. Mild tapping with a hammer should remove those easily. If you're having trouble with those, try loosening or removing the three nuts on the top of th strut, or support the bottom of the lower control arm. There is probably pressure on those bolts. Or push inward on the brake rotor, that may do it also. Be aware that once you do that operation, the alignment will probably have to be adjusted. You should mark it so it will at least be close.

Strut mounting kit


I just did that a few weeks agon on my daughter's 2004 Stratus Sedan. Same passenger side rear! The original factory part was **** and fell to pieces. The new parts are greatly improved. Buy two (2) because you will need one for the other side in the near future.

You will need a coil spring compressor for this job, some metric wrenches/sockets, and something to hold the top stud of the Strut when you loosen the nuts. I think the nuts inside the trunk are 15 mm and the big one at the bottom of the strut is 18 mm.

Check out moparpartsamerica.com/schematics/p/pm01495.gif for a great exploded view of the entire strut top to bottom. Go to the Auto Zone Web site and look up your struts and print the inspection and repair/replacement topics. Check the strut closely before you decide to put it back in, particularly if they have a lot of miles on them. I plan to replace all four struts next summer on my daughter's car.

I reused the old strut, but you need to decide if it is a good time to put new struts on for yourself. This would be a great time to do it if you need them. Look closely at the rubber bushings at the top of the strut and buy a new set if they are not really solid. I bought new ones when I did it.

Start inside the trunk by pulling back the trunk liner to expose the top of the strut and mounting bolts for the broken bracket. Spray all the nuts/bolts at top and bottom of the strut with liquid wrench a few times. Remove the two (2) outside nuts first. You will need a special socket to hold the end of the strut stud while you turn the nut off. I used a big pair of Vice Grips on the flats, but use the socket if you can get one.

That big bolt & nut that attaches the bottom of the strut will take some effort to remove. Use the coil spring compressor to take the load off that bolt before you try to remove it. The suspension component to the left of that bolt will need to be unbolted and lowered for the strut bolt to be removed. Good Luck!
