Question about 1999 Buick LeSabre
I tried to install struts on a car before. I will tell you this, you have to take it somewhere. Unless you have a spring compressor. Because you have to jack the car up, take the tire off, loosen the ball joint. Then use a pry bar and pop the transaxle out of the transmission. Take the three bolts out on the top of the coil spring, under the hood. Then the assymbly will fall down.
Then after I got it out, I took the nut off the strut and it jumped out about 5 inches and could never get it back together again. I tried every redneck solution I had. But could not compress the spring back down enough to put it back together. It would take something that weighs as much as a car.
I hope this helps. Good Luck
