Try going to the autozone.com website and register the car information. It doesn't cost anything and you'll have access to an online repair manual for the car. It's a pretty handy resource that I think you'll find helpful. The steps for replacing the struts should be there, along with other information on the suspension system. Hope this helped and best wishes.

How do i take off and put on rear struts


The bolts on top get stuck in the mount. Prying back and forth usually gets them to come out. Some times a long pry bar is need. Some times there are 3 nuts on top. If they are inline with the strut, There are 2 , if they are off set , there are 3. Been a while since I've done an older Dodge.

How to install front struts on a 2002 Dodge Intepid , is there any special precautions needed in installing these struts?


There are 7 bolts that hold the struts on the Dodge Intrepid. 4 are located under the hood. (in the corners of the hood compartment closest to the wind shield) 2 connect the strut to the brake assembly (just over where the lower ball joint/control arm assembly attaches.) and the last one goes to the outer tie rod end. I reccommend getting the quick struts. (they solve some headaches that I didn't avoid when I was doing them) You pretty much just unbolt these 7 things and put the new one in if you get the quick struts. If not you have to get a coil spring compressor.

dissassembly/reassembly of struts in a nutshell:

Step 1: Compress the spring with the spring compressor.
Step 2: Put a pair of large vice grips on the silver part of the strut inside of the spring (otherwise it will just rotate when you try to unbolt it)
Step 3: Remove the nut holding the strut to the spring.
Step 4: Before taking it all apart take note of how everything fits together.
Step 5: Postion everything the way it was before with the exception of the new strut inside of the spring.
Step 6: Put the top nut back on the strut so it holds the strut and spring together.
Step 7: Decompress the spring.

After putting the new strut in the car make sure you get the vehicle aligned.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT THE BOLT AT THE TOP OF THE STRUT IS TIGHT! IT IS VERY DANGEROUS FOR THIS TO BE LOOSE.

You will hear a loud clunking sound everytime you go over the slightest bump if you did not tighten it enough.

If you have any problems, I can give more detailed instructions.

Replacement of rear struts on a 2004 KIA Optima


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.
