I suggest QuickStruts (r). Unless you have a spring compressor, they're the most user friendly. They come in the box as a ready to go, one piece, assembly. You can access the upper 3 bolts either behind the rear seat, under the rear deck, or through the trunk. There are 3 bolts on top and either 1 or 2 on the lower suspension. Make sure the rear of the car is fully suspended and, remove the rear tires. This will make everything a little easier to work with. When installing the new struts, make sure there is no metal to metal contact on the upper mounting area of the strut. Just adjust the strut bushing accordingly.The upper bolts should be torqued to about 60 to 100 ft.lbs.. The lower bolts need to be torqued to at least 135ft.lbs.. Hope this helps get you started. Feel free to ask for any more info.

On a 2004 Dodge Intrepid, where is the strut tower located?

Open the hood, look in the back corners, just in front of the firewall. You will see two cylindrical shapes with three bolts coming out the top (possibly some other items attached). These house the tops of the front struts, called the strut towers. In the trunk are similar towers for the rear struts, but they are normally covered by the trunk liner and not as apparent.

should be done by a shop on a alignment machine, basically you just loosen the 2 big bolts on the hub that hold the strut to it, failure to do it properly will affect steering and ruin the tires.
