I need help replacing rear struts on a 2004 dodge stratus sedan


jack up the car and take off the wheel. go through the trunk and remove the trunk liner from the wheel well area. remove the two nuts off either of the center, dont remove the center one yet. now you remove the bolt from the bottom of the strut and remove the strut assy. you can buy new struts as a complete assy. or you will have to use a spring compressor and compress the spring until it is loose from the spring pad, then remove the nut from the top of the strut and it comes apart. a lot of times the rear mount goes bad on these cars and it makes noise on the bumps. it doesnt mean the strut is bad. you can check the strut by pushing the rod in and pulling it out, there should be steady resistance. any easy spots and the strut is no good. gas struts should fully extend by themselves from the gas pressure, if they dont, they are bad.

How to chnge control arm bushing on 1994 dodge intrepid


Here are the instruction on how to replace your control arm bushing. please not that there is a special tool needed that you will need to get from you auto parts retailer. you can usually rent these tools.
    1. Turn the control arm over in the arbor press, then position the arm so that it is supported by the receiver tool MB-990799 as shown.
  1. Position the new bushing into the control arm so it is square with the bushing hole. Position the installer tool MB-6644-1 or equivalent on top of the bushing, with the bushing setting in the recessed area of the installer tool. Press the bushing into the control arm.
  2. Press the control arm bushing into the control arm until the installer tool squarely bottoms against the surface of the control arm. When the installer tool squarely bottoms on the control arm, the bushing is installed in the arm in the correct position.
  3. Install the tension strut into the strut bushing in the control arm. Position the tension strut in the control arm with the word FRONT stamped in the tension strut positioned away from the control arm. With an open end wrench on the flat of the tension strut to stop the tension strut from turning. Tighten the NEW tension strut-to-control arm retaining nut to 110 ft. lbs. (150 Nm).
  4. Install the lower control arm and tension strut back onto the vehicle. Refer to the Lower Control Arm procedure earlier in this section.


Control Arm-to-Tension Strut Bushing
To replace the control arm tension strut bushing, the control arm and tension strut assembly must be removed. The removal of the bushing requires the use of an arbor press.
  1. Thoroughly lubricate the replacement tension strut bushing, control arm and installer tool 6644-3 or equivalent with a silicone lubricant.
  2. By hand, install the tension strut bushing into the large end of the installer tool. Press the bushing into the installer tool as far as it will go by hand.
  3. Position the control arm in the arbor press so that the tension strut hole in the control arm is centered on the receiver tool MB-990799 or equivalent. Position the installer tool with the previously installed bushing, inside of the tension strut bushing hole in the control arm. Position the installer tool on top of the tension strut bushing. Using the arbor press, press the tension strut bushing into the control arm. As the bushing is being pressed into the arm, a pop will be heard. When the pop is heard, the installer tool will slightly move up off the control arm. At this time remove the control arm assembly from the press and pull the tool MB-6644-3 off of the tension strut bushing in the control arm.

How to install front struts on a 2002 Dodge Intepid , is there any special precautions needed in installing these struts?


There are 7 bolts that hold the struts on the Dodge Intrepid. 4 are located under the hood. (in the corners of the hood compartment closest to the wind shield) 2 connect the strut to the brake assembly (just over where the lower ball joint/control arm assembly attaches.) and the last one goes to the outer tie rod end. I reccommend getting the quick struts. (they solve some headaches that I didn't avoid when I was doing them) You pretty much just unbolt these 7 things and put the new one in if you get the quick struts. If not you have to get a coil spring compressor.

dissassembly/reassembly of struts in a nutshell:

Step 1: Compress the spring with the spring compressor.
Step 2: Put a pair of large vice grips on the silver part of the strut inside of the spring (otherwise it will just rotate when you try to unbolt it)
Step 3: Remove the nut holding the strut to the spring.
Step 4: Before taking it all apart take note of how everything fits together.
Step 5: Postion everything the way it was before with the exception of the new strut inside of the spring.
Step 6: Put the top nut back on the strut so it holds the strut and spring together.
Step 7: Decompress the spring.

After putting the new strut in the car make sure you get the vehicle aligned.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT THE BOLT AT THE TOP OF THE STRUT IS TIGHT! IT IS VERY DANGEROUS FOR THIS TO BE LOOSE.

You will hear a loud clunking sound everytime you go over the slightest bump if you did not tighten it enough.

If you have any problems, I can give more detailed instructions.

How do I change the rear shock on my 1999 Dodge Neon?


  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the wheel and tire assembly.
  3. Unfasten the retainer(s), then remove the hydraulic flex hose bracket from the strut bracket. If equipped with ABS, the wheel speed sensor cable routing clip is also attached to the strut assembly bracket.
  1. Support the rear knuckle, suspension and brake components before removing the clevis bracket-to-knuckle attaching bolts. Do NOT allow the weight of the knuckle and related components hang without support when the strut is removed.


  2. WARNING The knuckle-to-strut attaching bolts are serrated and must not be turned during removal. Remove the nuts while holding the bolts stationary in the knuckle.
  1. Hold the bolt with a wrench, then unfasten the 2 clevis bracket nuts attaching the strut to the knuckle.
Fig. Fig. 2: Location of the knuckle-to-clevis bracket bolts


  1. Carefully lower the vehicle, then open the trunk. Access to the rear upper strut mount-to-strut tower attaching bolts is through the trunk of the car.
  2. If necessary, remove the carpet from the top of the strut tower. Then, remove the rubber dust shield from the top of the strut tower for easier access to the upper strut nuts.
  1. Loosen, but do not remove the 4 upper strut mounting nuts. Then, while supporting the strut assembly, fully remove the 4 strut mount attaching nuts.
  1. Remove the strut assembly from the knuckle by sliding the knuckle out of the clevis bracket on the strut, then remove it from the vehicle.
Carefully pull the strut assembly out of the vehicle
To install:
  1. Position the strut back into the vehicle with the 4 studs on the strut mount assembly through holes in the strut tower of the vehicle. Install the 4 strut mount-to-body attaching nuts onto the mount studs. Tighten the nuts to 25 ft. lbs. (34 Nm).
  2. Install the dust shield into the opening on top of the strut tower. Install the carpeting back on top of the rear strut tower.
  3. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  4. Install the knuckle into the clevis bracket on the strut assembly. Install the 2 clevis bracket-to-knuckle attaching bolts and nuts. Hold the bolts with a wrench while tightening the nuts to 70 ft. lbs. (95 Nm).
  5. Install the brake hose bracket to the strut bracket and secure with the retaining bolts. If equipped with ABS, the wheel speed sensor cable routing clip is also attached to the strut bracket.
  6. Install the wheel and tire assembly on the vehicle. Tighten the lug nuts evenly, in sequence, to 100 ft. lbs. (135 Nm).
  7. Carefully lower the vehicle.
  8. Have the toe checked and adjusted as necessary.
