Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer
2003 Mitsubishi Magna TL, not a galant but thats the only option in the drop down. Need to replace strut top bushes, how to drop front suspension? I have undone the 3 nuts on the strut tower, never worked on front wheel drive suspension before, would like a brief description of process to prevent screwing up too much, ha ha.
Try not to kill yourself.
You need a spring compressor for this job.
Three nuts on top , two at nuckle , disconnect any brake hoses or wires attached to strut if present ,
If brake hose goes through the bracket on the strut , and there is no options but disconnect brake line , I usually cut bracket carefully the way I can split bracket and take hose out without disconnecting the brake line.But make sure that it cut really nice so you can put it back together with locking spring.
After that , take strut assy. out and COMPRESS THE SPRING (spring compressor) ,after-take center nut on top of the strut out and you done. Memorize the way (mark it) spring was sitting , and sequence
for the parts and put it back together .
Installation - opposit of removal.
