There isn't online repair information available from Autozone.com, for the 2004 Dodge Stratus, so the best bet is to try to get your own repair manual from Haynes or Chilton or even the manufacturer of the vehicle, in order to find out how to do it.

SOURCE: Front struts replacement
Jack up and secure front end of your vehicle,Take off two front wheels. Loosen to bolt on the bottom of struts (Its a bolt and nut). Remove clip that holds brake hose on to strut and remove hose. DO NOT OPEN BRAKE LINE OR DISCONNECT FROM CALIPER. Remove bolts and remove bottom of strut from knuckle/Hub assembly. Then loosen nuts on strut tower( on top of fender inside hood) (3) nuts, mark exact locations of each nut on strut mount area on upper fender weld. Make sure to hold strut on the bottom so it doesn't drop down on caliper and knuckle or on you possibly.YOU WILL NEED A SPRING COMPRESSOR to compress spring so you can take struts off. MAKE SURE THAT SPRING IN COMPRESSED/SQUEEZED WITH A STRUT COMPRESSOR. Then loose center nut on strut tower(may be covered with a circular rubber cover) If nut spin around with out getting loose use vise grips to hold strut rod ONLY TO REMOVE STRUT NOT TO INSTALL. if you use vise grips to install it will damage strut. When nut is off, remove strut and reinstall new one transfer all rubber boots and cushions from old strut. Good Luck thanks for using FIX-YA.com contact me if you need more help.

There isn't really a replacement interval for struts however if you notice that the ride is a lot more bouncy then it used to be or notice oil leaking from them it's time to replace. For a quick crude but effective test, using the palm of your hands push down on a corner of the vehicle a few times to get it bouncing up and down. If once you release it it continues to bounce for more then 2 or 3 times it might be time to replace the struts.
