You have to get a new alignment after replacing suspension parts-that's normal.

If you had the struts done, you should have had an alignment done asap afterwards. If you didnt, that could be why the struts have gone bad already.

Left strut 1993 honda civic needs to be replaced, how is it done?

As with any suspension part you do both sides. Find the part on ebay or advance or autozone, if you get used from a junkyard you may well be getting another strut which is already beat to hell. With a car that old you may want to spring for a "quick strut" which has a new coil spring and upper strut mount which usually are also shot. Installation requires special tools and knowledge and an alignment afterward. You can save yourself some money by acquiring the parts and paying a shop to install them for you. Be prepared to find out at the alignment stage that ball joints and tie road ends are at the end of their service life also.

How to change front shocks

technically you do not have front "shocks" you have struts.. they are encased in a spring housing that would need to be removed from the car.. compressed, then change out the cartridges.. you can rent the spring compressor from stores like auto zone and pep boys.. you will need to have your front alignment done afterward.

99 camery solara...ratlingnoise front left wheel,

Strut tops are a common failure on the 97-01 era Camry/Solaras.

They will make a hollow rattle sound whenever you hit bumps or uneven pavement.

They can be replaced one at a time, and do not require strut replacement if your old struts are still in good shape.
Replacement does require a strut compressor and an alignment afterwards, placing it outside the scope of most do-it-yourselfers.

It is labeled "suspension support" in the following diagram. The bearing below it is typically replaced at the same time.

Sturt and Mounts

As far as driving without having a front end alignment done AFTER the strut replacement, you should head to a shop and have a front end alignment done. You MAY notice some vibrating or tire wear if not taken care of.

Looking at your struts online, the boot comes with the struts. All you have to do is drop yours and replace with the new!

I just got my front brakes replaced on my 2000 Toyota Camry. It has less than 80,000 miles on it. The mechanic said that there had been only 1/32nd" left on the front, but the back brakes were fine....

everything the mechanic suggested is right on target. Over time you do not realize that the ride of your car has deteriorated until you put on the new struts and the alignment is a must after the replacement of those struts. As far as the back brakes being good versus the front being worn out, the front brakes take a lot more abuse than the rears do to eight transfer upon braking.
