This is a dangerous job if you do not have the proper equipment for compressing the spring that is around the rear shock. I do not recomend performing this job without the proper equipment. Unloading the spring without it compressed can cuase injury.

If you have the proper equipment this is how you do it.

REMOVAL - SHOCK ASSEMBLY NOTE: Access for the nuts attaching the rear shock assembly upper mount to the vehicle is through the inside of the trunk.

  1. Roll back carpeting on top of the rear shock tower to access shock mounting nuts.
  2. Remove plastic cover from the top of the shock assembly.
  3. Remove 2 nuts attaching the shock assembly upper mount/spring seat to the shock tower.
  4. Raise vehicle on jackstands or centered on a frame contact type hoist.
  5. Remove the rear wheel and tire assembly from the vehicle.
  6. Remove two fasteners holding the splash shield to the shock assembly upper mount.
  7. Remove bolt attaching shock absorber to rear knuckle
  8. Remove the shock absorber from the rear knuckle first when removing the shock absorber from vehicle by pushing down on the rear suspension.
  9. Move shock assembly downward and tilt top of shock outward, then remove shock assembly from vehicle through top of wheel opening.

jack up the car take the wheels off the caliper which holds the pads need to come off usally 2 bolts if you are replacing the rotors you may have to hit them with a hammer to break the free if they have little clips on the rotors you can grabb the clips with pliers and take them off you do not need to replace them make sure you push the pistons on the calipers back in clean and lube the pins and the any where the rest on the knuckle do get lube on the rotors put it all back together do the same on the otherside before you start the car pump the brakes until a good pedal then you are good to go i hope this helps you

How do I tell if the rear brakes on my 1997 dodge stratus are anti-lock brakes?


If you have anti-lock brakes you should have extra brake lines and a pump in front of the master cylinder.

Dodge Stratus-1999.I do not have the owners manual for this car. Rear drum-brakes with half-moon adjusters and small springs. How do these adjusters work.and how the small springs are important?...


Try backing up and pulling the emergency brake until the car stops, to adjust the brakes.This works on some cars....not for sure on yours.

Cant get spring of rear brakes to change them


There are brake spring tools that can be found at your auto parts store. I would use a screwdriver and long nose pliers when the proper tool wasn't available.

No brake fluid flow to right rear brake


the stratus is know for clasped rear brake hoses .This stops the flow off brake fluid. try opening the brake lines at the master cylinder that go to the rear.pump up brakes first! if you got fluid than check the brake line if this is rear disc brakes on the line at the rear will be a built in proportioning valve.if drum loosen rubber hose line before the rubber part to see if you have fluid. If you do replace the brake hose! On you 74 challenger by the way i love dodge! any way on the valve there is a small button on the front of the proportioning valve that pops out it needs to be tap in lightly. also hit the brake peddel kind of hard a couple off times if that doesn't work. thanks for your question


p.s that hex bar on the is a junction not a proportioning valve .
