Question about 1999 Ford Taurus
How do I replace rear struts and springs, it has a 3.0 V6 engine and is the LX model
Replace it as a unit. Strut, spring, strut mount all in one. It's called a quick strut. Raise car by the body not the wheel. Remove brake line (1 bolt) from strut lower. Remove 2 large bolts holding lower strut end. In the trunk 3 smaller bolts hold the strut mount (upper end) in place. DO NOT remove the single large nut at the top of the strut assembly. Wiggle the strut assembly out. Slide the new strut assembly in bolt it back in. Put wheel back on. Done.

either put a jack under the strut (if you can do so safely and raise the strut or use a good pry bar to pull down on the A arm. make 100% sure the car is well supported with jack stands etc.
