  • Rent a spring compressor before you start removing the old struts and putting on the new ones. You can rent a spring compressor at any auto store. You can also buy one, but if you are only going to use the compressor once, it's best to simply rent it. Jack up the car and remove the tire. Then place one jack stand on the side you are working on.
  • 2 Loosen the two lower bolts that hold the brake line to the strut you want to remove. Remove the cap covering the top of the strut, and while holding the coil over the strut, remove three nuts. Pull out the cover to the strut assembly.
  • 3 Tighten the spring using the spring compressor and remove the nut at the top of the strut. Decompress the spring, and the strut will be freed from the spring. Remove the front strut.
  • 4 Put in the new strut and bolt it back up. Replace the tire. You now have the old strut removed and the new one in place.
  • 5 Repeat Steps 1 through 4 when removing and replacing the rear strut.

  • I hope this helps!!! Thanks!!!

    the automatic gas shut off switch is located in the trunk tucked up under the wheel well I think on the left side for that car. you need to feel around for it and press a button on it to reset it.

    My tires are slighting inwards the back tires. what could be wrong?

    The only reasons that I could come up with are the stut to knuckle attaching bolts are loose or have been loosened maybe alignment that wasn't done correctly or new stuts that they didn't bother with an alignment. Could also be the struts themselves are frozen. To check and see if in fact they are frozen, bounce the rear of the vehicle and see if it bounces a few times SOFTLY or do they bounce with little travel, very stiff like. Hope that this helps. Best wishes.

    one of the stuts / shocks have gone bad and need to be replaced. I am getting this done as I type this.

    Electronic stuts are 600-1500 dollars and passive stuts are 300-600 dollars. Also if using passive struts / shock you need a relay/connector to bypass the computer command ride control. The can be made for a few dollars or bought on the net for $85.
