Knocking noise from front right end on 98' camry. 99,000 miles, and I am the second owner. first owner kept up great maintanence. I have been advised from large national chain that both front end quick...

I think you should make quite certain at the mechanics' that it is the struts and mounts knocking, and not the lower main ball joints. However worn strut top mounts are the most likely cause.

You don't say where you are but in the US $1000 should get you new struts and mounts both sides, albeit not a top name brand, and a necessary wheel alignment also.

You should not just replace only one side as that will degrade the handling and steering of the car.

How to replace left control arm on 99 mercury cougar

Here's what I found on Yahoo answers:
For the driver's side: yes, you will have to raise the motor.
On all models, remove the front motor mount, Mark the position of the right engine mount, remove 3 right engine to mount bolts. remove one right engine mount to body nut. On all models hold the strut shaft with an 8 mm allen wrench, loosen top retaining nut 5 turns. Raise vehicle, remove ball joint to steering knuckle pinch bolt. seperate control arm ball joints from steering knuckle. Do NOT damage ball joint seal. Remove pinch bolt attaching steering knuckle to strut. Slide steering knuckle up on strut, Move transaxle to gain access to control arm nuts and bolts. remove 2 nuts and bolts and attaching control arm to subframe. Lifting up control arm remove.
Now this to mark the motor mount because you are supposed to use a powertrain alignment guage when putting back together. if not you can bind the motor in the unibody and make for a shaky ride.
that drivers side lower control arm calls for 4.3 hours where as the passenger side calls for 1.3 hours. So you can see what your in for.
BTW these instructions are taken straight from the Ford repair manual.

I would like to know how to change my Front struts on my 1999 buick Lesabre ??? Step by step.

Hello 14006jake,

Working on struts can be dangerous because the spring is under great pressure so caution must be used at all times. Unless you have a suitable spring compressor I would recommend you install complete strut assemblies. They come assembled with allnew parts and you don't need to deal with the spring.

1. Remove tie bar, this is a bar that runs from the top of the struts over the top of the engine 2 nuts on each side.
2. Remove the three strut mount nuts from the top of the struts.
3. Raise and properly support the car on the frame allowing the front control arms to hang free.
5. Remove tires and wheels.
6. Remove ABS speed sensor connector.
7. Remover ABS sensor bracket from strut.
8. Remove brake line bracket from strut.
9. Before you remove the strut strut to knuckle nuts and bolts mark the position of the bolts to knuckle so when you reinstall you can keep the camber correct.
10. Remove strut to knuckle bolts.
Note: care must be taken that no damage to the ball joint or CV axle, so retain the knuckle with a bungee strap or something suitable.
11. Remove strut from vehicle.

Install in reverse order.

Tighten the strut to knuckle bolts to 140 foot pounds.
Tighten lug nuts to 100 foot pounds.

If you are not sure if you kept the proper camber alignment you should have the front end aligned.

Again, care must be taken at all steps to avoid injury.

How do i remove front strut from 2003 ford tauras

Disconnect tie rod, end link and remove brake caliper. Disconnect ABS wiring. Remove lower control arm(ball joint) from spindle. Remove axle flange nut. Remove strut tower mounting nuts in engine compartment. Allow strut to slide down...Carefully remove axle from spindle, do not hammer the end. Use a center punch and hammer to remove it. Do not separate the axle components. There you go.

99 taurus reasembling after a ball joint teardown

You wont be able to push the strut up, if the bolts are tight at the top. You need to take a long prybar and push down on the control arm to get it below the strut/spindle assy. then push the spindle rotor drive axle assembly in toward the transmission, when you get it in far enough for the ball joint to line up, ease the pressure off the prybar and allow the ball joint stud to go in the hole on the spindle.
