Question about 2004 Kia Optima
I would like to know how to replace the rear struts on a KIA Optima. What tools will I need. Any problems I might run into.
CHANGING STRUTS REQUIRES A SPECIAL TOOL YOU RENT AT ANY PARTS STORE. THEY ARE NOT BAD FOR SOMEONE WHO KNOWS HOW TO FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS. THE TOOL HAS INSTRUCTIONS AS LONG AS YOU FOLLOW THEM STEP BY STEP, YOU'LL BE FINE. SHOPS MAKE WAY TOO MUCH MONEY ON THAT STUFF. THEY GET A 30-40 PERCENT DISCOUNT ON THE PARTS; THEY CHARGE YOU 15 PERCENT MORE THAN WHAT YOU WOULD PAY; AND THEY CHARGE TOO MUCH FOR LABOR. GET A BOOK NEXT TIME AND RENT THE TOOL. YOU'D BE SURPRISED HOW EASY THEY ARE.

Yes many problems, if you have to ask don't do it when it comes to struts. unless you get what is called quick struts.. changing regular struts is very dangerous if yo do not have the propper training or tools. for your own safety have a reputable shop do them for you
