Does a 94 olds cutlass supreme have rear shocks or struts?


it is considered a strut on the rear even though it doesn't have a coil spring wrapped around it. it bolts to the rear spindle and goes through the rear of the body. the car will need to be re-aligned if you replace them.

Why does my 1995 Oldsmobile cutlass supreme lean to the left side in the back


Look at the strut on that wheel, there is a coil spring wrapped around it. Most likely it is broken and you will need to have an new strut and coil spring. If it isn't broken, let me know.

How to replace the rear springs and what size are brake lines.


rear springs are part of a strut assy, get a quick strut fom o'reilleys or az. it has the spring, strut, mount, all new and ready to pop in, otherwise you will need to tear the strut down and will need special tools. it is also a little risky, springs can fly pretty good when they slide out of compressors

Front and strut replacement, how?


Yes, you need a spring compressor. The sturt and coil spring come off as one. Then you need to compress spring to remove strut. The old one off and the new one on and then un-compress the spring and remount in car.
Sounds simple, but it can take a while.

Rear springs replacement


You will need a spring compressor first of all. You have to remove strut, compress sring to get cartridge and spring apart and then replace new spring on strut and replace into vehicle. This is a nasty job without a hoist

How do you change the rear struts in my 95 Olds Cutlass supreme? Is this something I could do myself or would I be better off taking it to a mechanaic?


Many of the 95 Cutlass Supremes have a transverse leaf spring suspension on the rear and there are no coil springs. I believe it depends on whether it is a 2 door or 4 door model. It is much easier to do the struts on the transverse leaf spring type. Support the knuckle with a jack or jack stand. Unbolt the upper mounting bracket by removing 2 bolts from inside the wheel well. Then remove the 2 bolts holding the bottom of the strut to the knuckle. Now you can remove the upper mounting bracket from the strut and place it on the new strut. Reinstall by reversing the procedure.

You can also leave the upper mounting bracket on the car and just unbolt the strut, but this can be more difficult. Support the knuckle with a jack or jack stand. Use a torx socket to keep the strut shaft from spinning and remove the upper mounting nut. Now remove the 2 bolts holding the bottom of the strut to the knuckle. Reinstall by reversing the procedure.

Replace front strut


You will need a strut spring compressor. You can probably buy a cheap one for about as much as a shop would charge you to install a new spring on your strut.

Sometimes you can even "borrow" these from your local parts store with a deposit.

It is probably faster to do it yourself than bring it to a shop.

You need to compress the spring before you put it in the strut housing. Directions should be included with the spring compressor kit.

Here's the general directions:

Take the two bolts on the bottom off

There may be a bolt holding the brake line in place (remove it)

Take the three bolts on the top off

The strut assembly should be free now.

Pull strut assembly out and set it on the floor

The top nut holds the top bearing plate and that holds the spring in place.

Remove the top nut

Remove old broken spring

Compress new spring and put it in place on the strut

Put strut top plate on and secure locknut

Release spring compressor.

Reinstall strut assembly in car.


Good Luck!
