How to remove rear struts

Remove or disconnect the following:
Hold the hex on the attaching link stud while breaking the nut loose. The attaching link does not have to be removed from the strut.
Rear wheel
Caliper assembly and rotor from the hub, if equipped with rear disc brakes
Brake flex hose from the support bracket and wheel cylinder, if equipped with rear drum brakes. Plug the brake flex hose to prevent system contamination. Do not allow the rear caliper to hang by the brake hose. Support the caliper off of the frame with a strong piece of wire.
Speed sensor cable routing bracket and tube, if equipped with Anti-lock Brake System (ABS)
Lateral links to the rear spindle assembly bolts
Rear strut assembly-to-stabilizer bar attaching link at the stabilizer bar
Remove the rear spindle-to-strut assembly pinch bolt. Install a center punch in the hole on the spindle and tap the punch into the hole until jammed. This will spread the spindle casting allowing it to be removed from the strut.
Using a hammer, tap on the top surface of the spindle, driving the spindle down and off the end of the strut assembly. Let the spindle and assembled components hang from the trailing arm while the strut is being serviced.
From inside the trunk of the vehicle, remove the 3 upper strut mounting bolts and remove the strut from the vehicle.
Disassemble the strut by performing the following procedure:
Service of the coil spring requires the use of a coil spring compressor tool. It is required that 5 coils be captured within the jaws of the compressor tool.

I just replace struts on mine 1992 cadillac on the drive side i can get the strut up but the hub want move back up so i can bolt the bottom of the strut.

You need to take a pry bar and pry up on the "y" looking piece with a stud on the end of it. Pry up on this piece to hook the strut back up the hub. You will need to do this to get it in line to beable to get it together. Please pry carefully.

Gringing nose left front wheel. i have replaced the break pads roters calabers springs and struts and hubs still have grinding nose

Is this a front wheel drive car? If so, the noise may well be from a CV joint coming apart. Given the extent of parts you have replaced, not much is left. Also might look to see if something is rubbing on a part of the rotating wheel / hub assembly.

Installing wheel hub onto drive shaft and strut.

The strut would not extend. Strut are made to go inside of the coil spring, and held in the compressed position.
If the strut is sticking past the coil spring something has gone wrong. You'll need to compress spring and fix it.

Need to replace steering arm on pass side on 1998

Your description leads me to believe that the spindle is bent. This is the piece that the tie rod attaches to near the wheel. Sometimes the tie rod is attached to a piece that attaches to the spindle which is rather intuitive. Just remove the tie rod end, unbolt the arm that attaches to the spindle and replace the arm. In this case the only special tool you'll need is a tie rod seperator.

If the arm is a part of the spindle and cannot be removed easily:

1) Put vehicle in park and safety brake on - chock the rear wheels
2) Lift passenger side front wheel and put on jack stands
3) Remove wheel and have a friend apply brake pressure
4) Loosen hub nut with appropriate socket (22 to 35mm)
You can purchase the socket from your local auto parts store
You'll need a large breaker bar, its torqued to about 100ft-lbs
5) Remove tie rod end with a tie rod/ball joint separator
This can also be purchased at your local auto parts store.
Some spindles are made with tie rod end permanantly attached
If it is removable, remove nut and drive the separator tool
between the tie rod and spindle using a large hammer.
It'll eventually break free from the spindle.
6) Remove the strut with a strut spring compressor tool
This can be purchased at your local auto parts store.
Compress spring before removing lower bolts (2 of them).
The strut may be left on vehicle but the spring must be
7) Remove caliper and break assembly
Loosen the two slide bolts that go through the caliper assembly
Remove caliper and breaks - let it hang by the tubing
8) Detach upper and lower ball joints with seperator tool as in #5
9) Finally remove the hub nut from #4
The spindle should slide off the axle
10) Repair or replace the spindle and put it all back together in
reverse order using new wheel bearings. Pack them with axle
grease if theyr'e not the sealed type.

NOTE: The tie rod end may need to be replaced also. The vehicle will need a front end allignment. Be sure to torque the hub nut to the manufacturers specifications - at least 75ft-lbs. You should probably replace the wheel bearings.

Wheel bareing

No it is not an easy fix.front or rear? Fornt: Jack up the front end of the car after loosening the lug ahve to take off tire Disconect battery Recomended. Disconect wheel sensor wire or abs wire(if equiped) then pry open caliper brake pads to allow easy removal. Remove the caliper Via the two bolts on the back. Remove the Break rotor by pulling out on the rotor. sometimes they like ti stick so you might have to hit it with a rubbro or plastic hammer. I have even seen it where it has to be heated to get the rotor off of the car. After you get that off then you can see the hub assembly. Behind the hub, below the strut are three bolts that have to come out. Usuall you cant get to them. So then you have to take off the axle nut and seperate the lower ball joint from the caliper housing and slide it out a little bit until you ahve the clearance to get the tool in there and remove the bolts. BUT if your Bolts are located behind the rotor on the front side of the hub then you have to put the car in nutral and rotate the hub hole to the front of each bolt to get a socket and extention through and remove the bolt. After all bolts are removed then hit the back of the hub on each side until it comes out and then replace with the new one and reverse the steps that i told you to put it back together. When it is together DO NOT TO FORGET TO PUMP YOUR BREAKS BACK UP TILL YOUR PEDAL IS FIRM. If you dont you wont have breaks when you drive it until it pumps themselves back up.
