Hello! The best thing to do is go to a well know junkyard that have good condition items. And you need to look at your car to see if you have tools that you can take them off. Don't forget to ask your friends if they have tools and if they can help you.

rebuilding the SC is not a do it yourself repair, and requires special tools to do it properly (ie. with out it blowing apart when you start it)

Best to either get an allready rebuilt one or a used good one from a salvage yard

How do you install front struts on a 1995 park avenue that has dyna ride. is there more to it than just replacing the strut?


View your replacement strut before starting...not much to switch out the struts...no special notes...be sure to have aligned after the switch out...The Park Avenue will eat your front tires alive...if not aligned properly...Hope this helps.

How do I replace cv boot on a buick park ave


The boot you need to replace is call OUTER CV BOOT.

The quickest way to inspect is to drive it in low speed (UNDER 10 mph) tight left and right turns.

If you hear clicking sound then the CV shaft is bad.

It's also depending on how long the CV boot been crack.

===
If you decide to go ahead on the job then please observe safety and use jack stands to fully support the front end.

Remove wheel,cotter pin,retainer cap and larger axle nut.

Make alignments markings on the strut tower and steering mount so your front end will able to put back to alignment.

You will need an able body to do the following.

Remove the large lower strut bolts and swing the strut off the CV.

DO NOT ROCK THE CAR!!!

Clean off the outer CV.

Install boot,grease and the two bands.

Line up the strut and steering yoke marks

repack bearings,lock nut,cap,cotter pin,wheel.


Drive the car in low speed for 1 miles with tight turns.

Do a quick inspection to make sure the CV boot is sitting perfectly on the CV.
