Loosen the lower control arm pivot bolts to be easier to pry downward control arms.

How reset check engine light


The easiest way to reset a check engine light on almost any modern car is to disconnect the battery wait five minutes and connect it back up. This will not tell you why the check engine light came on. For that you need a ODBII scanner, but if the issue was a gas cap left off and you have fixed that, then check engine the light should go off. I have found that many auto parts stores will read your car's ODBII codes for free.

My steering goes mad when driving on rough roads, mostly on left side. a bit like driving a jelly. could this be the springs?


It is unlikely to be the springs but more likely to be the ancillary suspension components such as the shock absorbers (suspension dampers) and either tired or worn rubber bushings on the the anti-roll (anti-sway) bar and control arms. Some cars are fitted with a steering damper arm and if this loses its damping effectiveness the steering will shimmy about. Bounce on each corner of the front of the car. The body should rebound and come to rest within one and half cycles. If the car continues to bounce the shocks need replacing. Lift the front of the car and remove the front wheels. Inspect the rubber bushings of control arms and shock absorber mounts for wear and annular cracks. Use a pry bar to apply force in order to detect for undue play in linkages and control arms. Check for play in the steering control arms ball joints and in the steering rack itself, including the mounting bolts. Everything should be tight and firm. Anything obviously loose and/or worn should be replaced.

Does This Car Have Rear "Struts" Or Shocks?? What Is the Difference?


THe 93 Mazda has both actually. The shock absorber in this car is just one component of the so called strut assembly. Read on if you want the details: Shock absorbers are simple suspension dampers that control the unwanted spring motion of the vehicle's frame caused by the suspension's springs. Struts, or strut assemblies, basically does the same thing, although they are used on a different type of suspension system and performs another function, which is to provide support for the suspension system.

A strut assembly is composed basically of a shock absorber unit, a coil spring, an upper pivot, and a lower control arm. A lot of vehicles today make use of strut assemblies instead of simple shock absorbers for the suspension system. The most popular of these strut assemblies is the MacPherson Strut for the front suspension and its rear suspension counterpart, the Chapman Strut.

Mazda vehicles are well known for their sporty looks and performance, amazing a lot of auto critics when they accelerate on paved streets and highways. Mazda vehicles, however, also has the capability of running on an off-road track without affecting the comfort that Mazda passengers feel; thanks a lot to the high quality Mazda struts they are equipped with. Original Mazda struts are guaranteed to provide every Mazda passenger a pleasurable ride, whatever kind of trail they may choose to traverse.

Suspension bouncy


i am not familiar with the mercedes suspension but your problem is caused by bad shocks .. not sure if they are seperate from the hydraulic system .. if they are then thats what you need .. if the shocks are part of the hydraulic system (that would be some neat engineering) .. then there is likely a valve that acts like a shock absorber in that system .. it sounds like the suspension system is working good .. its just the shock absorber system that is causing the trouble ..

Install shocks on a mazda miata


You will need a strut compressor if you have rear struts. You will need to remove the upper bolt inside hatch and one connected to axle. compress springs, and remove strut.
If this is regular shocks, lift car up by bumper, remove top and bottom bolts and replace.

First you should buy a do it yourself repair manual. Replacing shocks is a very easy procedure and usually only requires jack and one or two tools. A repair manual will tell you what tools you will need and instructions.

How do i remove coil springs from 1997 jeep wrangler Step by Step instructions please


General instructions are to drop the suspension down by removing sway bar, shocks etc, then lifting the body not the suspension off the ground till the springs are free. For specifics, get a manual it's too long to write out here.

Changing rear shocks on a 1990 jag


No. But if can't get it on a lift or high enough to work under comfortably..it will be very awkward. The calipers get in the way when you are removing the springs and shocks as a unit. You can move the part and get it out and down, but you will need to remove the rear wheels and let the rear springs hang down.
Make sure you have a good spring compressor to get the old springs off....in most cases it is the springs that go soft and not the shocks...
Don't assume that it is the shocks unless you know for sure they are bad.
