    Use lots of solvent on bolts, support underneath so suspension does not drop after shock comes off.

Check out the autozone website and register the vehicle information. It's free and will give you access to an online repair manual for the vehicle. It's a handy resource and should have information on the suspension system there. Hope this helped and best wishes.

How do you replace the rear shocks in 1993 buick lasabra

Shocks are on really tight. Personally, I would take it to Midas or such. Many times you can get good deals, oil changes and such along with minor work.

The passenger rear side shock is knocking about. How do I change the shock if it is broken or has just come loose? Appears to be at the top under trunk

They're easy to change - just compress, remove, compress, install - unless they're coil - over - shock, then the spring needs to be compressed (DANGEROUS) and removed as well.
If it's just loose, try replacing the shock tower mounts.

Rear spring shock is broken on my pontiac montana van, year make 2002,is it easy to fix or how much will it cost,thank`s

I usually charge a base price on shocks and change shocks I charge around 30.00 or 40.00 dollars labor per pair.struts i charge 65.00 per pair.i'm cheeper than most guys because of the rural small town i live in here in alabama.but it may be your leaf spring not real sure by the discription,you could mean the shock,or the strut but it could mean the leaf spring which i think montanas have a shock and leaf spring set up not struts.i can't pull up my picture in my head too clearly,i've seen underneath hundreds of those vans just can't remember.hope i helped you with a price,don't let any body rip you off on the labor cause shocks are fairly easy to change.

Rear shock absorbers

they are simple to change however you will need a spring compressor.

1 jack car and use axle stands to support the car.
2 remove wheel
3 behind drum or disc break assembly you will see shock absorber assembly
5 remover lower but (it may be very tight due to corrosion and time).
6 undo top nut located in boot around the top of the wheel arch. This may require the removal of some interior trim.
7 compress spring using spring compressor (use device instructions as these vary from type to type)
8 Undo top nut on the shock absorber assembly, remover cap spring and other rubbers.

Reinstalling is basically the instructs in reverse.

Good luck!
