Question about 2000 Toyota Sienna
What is the procedure for the re-installation of struts on a 2000 Toyota minivan. Because of the tight space, I am having difficulty compressing the springs. Should I; 1) compress the spring, 2) assemble the new strut and spring assembly, 3) locate the assembly back in the wheel well, 4)release the strut so that it extends up, and 5) finally release the spring tension?
I was having difficulty keeping the assembly straight when I was releasing the spring tension before allowing the strut to extend.
If you do not have a spring press and are not trained on one, you probably should not do this as it may be very dangerous. I work with master mechs who still struggle with these, even though they have over $100,00 dollars in tools and over 40 years of experience. These are **** . If you need to ask over the internet, this may be very hard to achieve even with internet help.
