Yes you need a strut compressor not the macpherson style of old days. You need to remove alot of stuff,like the brake calipers,the wheel bearing lock pin,the front abs sensor, then remove the strut/spring assembly. You need an air wrench. Try pepboys or ntb for a better price,installed. Don't try this on your own based on what you said. Serious injury or death will result from improper use of tools or wrong installation.

Periodic clunck in front end


A 2003 SUV will clock in over 80,000 miles.

It's time to inspect the shocks and struts.

The periodic clunck you hear in front end can cause by


mud guard boot to metal strut body contact

worn strut center post to body of strut contact

worn rubble linkage

or combination to all of the above.


I would take the SUV to a good car wash that has under carriage cleaning.

Let the SUV dry and inspect it someone who can compress the front end.

If the front of the SUV re-bound two times then the struts will need to replace.

I need to replace the front struts on my 2005 Nissan Murano S. Do I need to replace my strut mounts at the same time, or are they a reusable part?


I would not replace them unless they are obviously bad. If replacement is neccessary, use dealer parts. NON Nissan parts are not as good of quality.

Since the ride is still OK, I would hold off on the strut replacement, but I would try some silicon spray for rubber on the suspension rubber parts (and strut assy) and try to stop the squeaking that way. Hope this helps because I would have guessed brake noise before strut noise.

Does a 95 mustang have shocks or struts and how hard are they to chenge can you DIY it


struts in the front, shocks in the rear. struts take what are called cartridges, they require special tools to replace, shocks are just simple hand tools and very easy to replace.

Replacement shocks and struts


Check out autopartswarehouse they list front and rear KYB product. Not much out there, probably because of the year of the Murano, not too many people replacing shocks/struts yet, there will be much more available in a couple of years. I had to search for some time to find something.

2004 Nissan Murano Rear Hatch Struts


I would assume your talking about the small hatch shocks right? If thats the case try your local auto store, napa, autozone, pepboys etc. they sell for about 20 each there and just go by the size of the old ones.
