Remove all the components, drill out the spot welds for the rusted panels, probably about 100 of them. Get new panels and weld them back in. Very difficult procedure and somewhere in the expert skill level. Suggestion is get another car and turn that one in for scrap metal.

This is more likely to be a snapped or damaged spring.
Get it checked out immediately by a qualified mechanic, as it can be very dangerous. If it is a snapped coil spring, it could fall out completely when going over a big bump.

Why does my 97 tahoe leans to the left side


Frame could be twisted from a previous wreck, the rubber isolators for the cab shell to frame could be dry rotting or in an area rusting out. Was it ever crashed- anti sway bar might reveal a twist)? Core support might be twisted. Other suspension components may be dry rotting or worn. Front tires may also be two different sizes overall.

New springs replaced pairs would be a better solution than spacers if evertything tracks back to spring height issues. You may also have some cracked leaves in the rear springs as well.

Have you checked the ride height and made those adjustments yet?

Right Rear Coil spring Assembly Broken ( Pot Hole) Car is lower on right rear. Will I have to Replace both rear coil springs for this repair? Where can I get a schematic of shock coil spring assembly?


No, you don't absolutely have to replace both rear springs to make it all functional again. Having said that, if I were you, I would replace both so as to assure myself that I had a evenly balanced rear suspension.

As to the schematic, you can purchase a vehicle specific repair manual at your local PepBoys, Auto Zone, Advance, O'Reilly's, etc. that will contain the info you seek. Probably won't run over $25

Hope this is of some help.

Good luck!

Best way to repair rusted main brake line to rear of car. do i have to replace the whole line or can i splice it? its rusted above rear axel


It is best to replace the complete line, if it is rusted and you splice it , another leak spot might spring a leak, when you last expect it, better safe than sorry.

Left front coil spring broke, popped out of the brackets, extended down and ir wedged against tire. if i can cut the coil and get it out of there, will the car be drivable enough to get to repair shop? who...


If you have a broken coil spring then you shouldn't drive the car at all. Driving with the coil missing can cause lots of damage to the rest of your suspension system. The Ford Taurus is pretty bad about breaking these springs. They tend to rust up pretty bad and fail as the cars age. Have your car towed into the shop. This repair will probabaly cost you a few hundred dollars unless you know a mechanic who can do it for you. You need specialized equipment to get the new spring back on the strut. This is a highly dangerous job to the unexperienced mechanic.

Car sitting lower than other side


The rear spring has weakened over time. Also, check that the Stabilizer link to the rear spring, on the left side hasn't broken. It's a bolt that goes down through the end of the bearing support, and attaches to the end of the spring. Sometimes the bolt rusts away, and breaks. The left front spring may be weak also. The car is 28 years old now. I have a 1976 Corvette, and customize Corvettes in my spare time.
