There isn't really a replacement interval for struts however if you notice that the ride is a lot more bouncy then it used to be or notice oil leaking from them it's time to replace. For a quick crude but effective test, using the palm of your hands push down on a corner of the vehicle a few times to get it bouncing up and down. If once you release it it continues to bounce for more then 2 or 3 times it might be time to replace the struts.

Shocks


1992 Toyota Celica is not equipped with front "shocks". This vehicle is equipped with front wheel drive and independent MacPherson strut front suspension. Any repairs made to this system requires the removal of the entire strut assembly, which includes the strut, the coil spring and upper strut bearing assembly.

Replacement of any of the parts of the strut assembly requires the use of specialized equipment designed to compress and hold the coil spring to relieve the tension on the strut and upper bearing assembly.

Any attempt to disassemble the strut assembly without the proper equipment for compressing and securely holding the coil spring can result in SERIOUS INJURY or DEATH.

Of course this is only the cartridge, you have to transfer the spring, and the top mount of the existing strut. You need a pair of coil spring compressor to do the job. The basic procedure to replace a strut is:
Remove the top nuts that secure the strut assembly to the frame mount inside the engine compartment. Do not remove the center nut.
Mark the lower strut mounting location on the hub for installation reference. The alignment will be close if the new strut is installed in the same position.
Remove the bolts that hold the strut assembly to the hub.
Remove the strut assembly from the vehicle.
Mark the top mount for installation reference. Using a side mounted spring compressor, compress the spring and remove the top nut and retaining washer. Pull strut assembly out from the bottom of spring.
Slide the new strut assembly up into the spring and reposition the top mount onto the spring in the same position that it was removed. Install the retaining washer and top nut.
Tighten the top nut to the manufacturer's specifications and carefully remove the spring compressor.
Place the strut assembly back into the vehicle.

Do i need to drop the steering knuckle and if so do i need to compress the coil spring?2004 Toyota Matrix xr


no..but you will need to remove the strut from the vehicle which requires removing both large bolt connectors from the upper mounting arm of the knuckle for the strut...also remove the 3 upper mounting nuts in the engine compartment tower. Strut assembly then will so into a special press that compresses the spring in order to dis-assemble.
