Cut away the rusted steel and have a repair plate fabricated and installed using automotive grade hardened steel rivets designed for this type of repair, this requires special tools and a good knowledge of metal working

SOURCE: front shocks/struts not attached at top mount,

you will need to get spring compressors to do the job and if they rusted away chances are the strut shaft nut is rusted too and will need heat from a torch or a powerful air tool to remove it . but if you want to try it first you jack the car and remove the wheel.then unbolt the two large bolts that hold it to the knukle at the bottom,brake hose might be attached to it also remove it .then unbolt the four bolts at the top that hold it and remove the strut. now you will need a strut compressor to squeeze the spring so that the mount is free of pressure from the spring,replace it with the new one careful to install the spring into the seat just like it was.reverse install

Check the upper strut mount and struts, on both sides. a strut mount may be bad and squeeks when turning wheel. The strut mount is where the struts hook to on the top under hood. Good-Day! could also be a bad strut.

Rear air bags not inflating


Check the upper air strut mounts for being loose

Have to get under it or put on a lift

Could be exhaust heat shields making noise

The rear air strut won't last the 18 years or so, you
own the car

At about 12 years they rust & leak oil & need to be replaced

How do you replace the rubber mounts on the front struts ? do you have to remove or compress the strut ? I have mounting kit, but there are NO instructions.


Yes.You need a strut compressor.Don`t loosen the big nut on top or you could get hurt.The strut has to come out in one piece then you mount it on a strut compressor to relieve the spring tension.Then loosen and remove the nut and the upper mount and install the new one.You will also have to have the alignment checked and adjusted if needed.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Noise in right front wheel or dsah board


The solution is the upper strut mounting plate. To fix it you need to take out the strut tower and take apart the strut. The faulty part is the plate that has the 3 studs that actually mount the top of the strut to the frame. You may want to also plan on replacing the strut as well, when i took mine apart, the strut piston wouldnt go back into the strut body, that means its shot. Also if one side needs this done the other probably does too. The upper strut mount is about 20 bucks only from a dealer and the strut is about 60 from any auto parts store. hope this helps
