They are just shocks. You'll need to remove the top nut of the shock, remove the washer and rubber bushing, remove the bolt going thru the bottom of the shock, and remove the shock.

Ok on this same car 2005 in the front end are there shocks or struts cause it drives really well but when I go over a bump it's makes like a sound thud an one more question how much for the front end


Not enough information to answer. Need manufacturer, year, model, and engine size in order to answer the question. That said, most late model cars use struts. Cost can vary by model and type of strut. Also, if strut mounts need replacement, they add to the cost. Labor varies based upon vehicle type. Front end alignment must accomplished after strut replacement on most vehicles. At a US shop, figure a minimum of $500.00 for parts and labor.

I need to replace my front struts on my 98 Buick park ave I don't have much money to work with what is the best solution and do I need a special tool to replace them


Hello! The best thing to do is go to a well know junkyard that have good condition items. And you need to look at your car to see if you have tools that you can take them off. Don't forget to ask your friends if they have tools and if they can help you.

The tires are wear out on the inside and dishing on the outside, is this a sign of wore out struts causing the front to be out of line. What is the fix needed replacw struts in front and new tires


Wearing on the inside can be caused by an excessive camber angle or excessive toe out, or both. Either of these can be caused by worn or damaged suspension parts. Camber affects Caster, and Camber and Caster affect Toe. Toe affects the Thrust Angle. (These are the major suspension angles involved in wheel alignment) The "dishing" or "cupping" is caused by what is sometimes called "wheel-hop" this can be caused by worn-out struts or shocks and can also be caused by tires that are seriously out of balance.

The recommended "Fix" would be to inspect the ENTIRE suspension system to check for loose and/or worn and/or damaged parts. Replace any of these parts as necessary. Then replace and balance the tires and head straight over to the alignment shop to have all of your suspension angles set to manufacturer's specifications. (Most tire stores also have an alignment machine)

Periodic clunck in front end


A 2003 SUV will clock in over 80,000 miles.

It's time to inspect the shocks and struts.

The periodic clunck you hear in front end can cause by


mud guard boot to metal strut body contact

worn strut center post to body of strut contact

worn rubble linkage

or combination to all of the above.


I would take the SUV to a good car wash that has under carriage cleaning.

Let the SUV dry and inspect it someone who can compress the front end.

If the front of the SUV re-bound two times then the struts will need to replace.

Front shock replacement 1995 Plymouth Voyger


Those are the symptoms of worn shocks and struts. You should have them replaced by a mechanic. From choosing the low end not so high quality shocks/struts as the replacements, to the high quality OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) shocks/struts it should cost you around $250-$400. Let me please note that some times the shocks do not need replacing but that is at your discretion. Thanks for asking!
And don't forget! It's at your discretion leave a rating!. I always try my best at explaining my answer to your problem.

Has a clunk in front end when i go over speed bumps or any bumps in general


It sounds like you have worn struts in the front,you can check the top nut on the struts it could be loose,but most likely you will need to replace both front struts and when that is done make sure to get a front end alignment also.
