SOURCE: replace rear struts

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.

I had the same problem and after several test I figured out that the problem is internal to the radio.
I bought a used one on ebay for about $50 and now everything is OK.

struts frozen or not will not control how close the tires are to the strut. The tire and lower portion of the strut move of one. The compresson/rebound point is about the strut base

I need help replacing rear struts on a 2004 dodge stratus sedan


jack up the car and take off the wheel. go through the trunk and remove the trunk liner from the wheel well area. remove the two nuts off either of the center, dont remove the center one yet. now you remove the bolt from the bottom of the strut and remove the strut assy. you can buy new struts as a complete assy. or you will have to use a spring compressor and compress the spring until it is loose from the spring pad, then remove the nut from the top of the strut and it comes apart. a lot of times the rear mount goes bad on these cars and it makes noise on the bumps. it doesnt mean the strut is bad. you can check the strut by pushing the rod in and pulling it out, there should be steady resistance. any easy spots and the strut is no good. gas struts should fully extend by themselves from the gas pressure, if they dont, they are bad.

My 2001 Dodge Stratus uses struts only instead of shocks. I recently had struts and stabilizer bars installed on the rear of my car. My question is why do I still get the same results when driving, like...


If the struts are new the springs may need to be replaced. These struts should have a spring around them then there is the leaf spring that could be the issue. You could try using spring stiffiners to tighten the suspension up but I would discuss this with my mechanic first. it really sounds like they replaced the struts with a standard strut assembly and what you wanted was the sport suspension strut.
