How to change the struts on toyota previa 1994


. Place a set of wheel chocks behind the rear wheels of the Previa. Lift the front of the automobile on the side that you are starting with. Place a jack stand under the Previa and raise it to the frame of the vehicle. Remove the wheel using the lug wrench to loosen the lug nuts.
2Remove the brake caliper by loosening the retaining pins with a socket and ratchet. Secure the caliper out of the way using a wire tie. Do not allow it to hang by the hose. Remove the brake rotor from the wheel. Disconnect the ABS sensor from the strut if the Previa has anti-lock brakes.

Disconnect the stabilizer bar link using a wrench. Loosen the two lower bolts on the strut assembly with a socket and ratchet but do not remove them. Remove the cotter pin from the tie-rod end using the pliers.
4Remove the castellated nut with a wrench. Separate the tie-rod end from the wheel knuckle. Remove the top three bolts from the strut using a socket and ratchet. Access the bolts from inside the engine compartment on the wheel well. Remove the bottom bolts and take the strut from under the Previa.
5Place the spring compressor on the coil spring and tighten it enough that the pressure is taken off the spring seats. Remove the center nut from the strut shaft using a wrench. Remove the coil spring cap, coil spring and spring seats from the strut. Put the coil spring on the new strut along with the spring seats and cap.
6Install the center nut and tighten it with a wrench. Place the strut on the Previa and loosely install the two bottom bolts. Connect the top three bolts and tighten them with a socket and ratchet. Tighten the bottom bolts with a socket and ratchet. Connect the tie rod to the wheel knuckle. Install the castellated nut and tighten it with a socket and ratchet.
7Insert a new cotter pin in the tie-rod end and spread it open with the pliers. Connect the stabilizing bar link. Tighten the bolt with a wrench. Connect the brake hose bracket to the strut and tighten the nut with a wrench. Connect the ABS sensor if the Previa has antilock brakes.
8Put the brake rotor on the wheel assembly. Cut the wire tie securing the caliper using the pliers. Place the caliper in the mounting cradle and tighten the locking pins with a socket and ratchet. Install the wheel on the Previa. Tighten the lug nuts with a lug wrench. Remove the jack stand from under the Previa. Lower the vehicle to the ground.

How do i repla


replace front axle shaft you need to loosen axle nut with vechicle weight on the wheel just unloosen axle nut dont take axle nut all the way off just loosen it enough first remove hub cap to loosen axle nut.once loosen then raise vechicle remove wheel tire.you need to remove loosen brake caliper bolts just move brake caliper out of way support caliper piece of wire dont have to disconnect brake caliper hose just move it aside let it hang with a piece clothe hanger or piece or cord dont hang caliper by brake hose will damage brake hose.you need to remove brake caliper mounting bracket.go ahead remove axle nut.you have to remove steering knuckle bolts pull steering knuckle out of the strut bracket.you can remove front axle shaft by using large pry bar to the inner cv pry inner cv joint use a little leverage front axle should pop out.when you install new axle shaft push it in place until you hear it snap in place try pull by hand make sure half shaft in place. when done axle nut torque is 191 ft lbs.strut bracket bolts torque at 133 ft lbs.if this is your first time working on vechicle let a garage do the job.but buy the new shaft then take it with you for garage to replace be cheaper take own parts help cut down costs for part just pay for labor.

HOW TO INSTAL QUICK STRUTS ON A CHEVROLET MONTE CARLO 2003


Hello dedime,
Removal

1. Remove the nuts and bolt attaching the top of the strut assembly to the body.

2. Raise and support the vehicle. Refer to Vehicle Lifting.

3. Place jack stands under the front cross member.

4. Lower the vehicle slightly so that the weight of vehicle rests on the jack stands and not on the control arms.

Notice: Care must be exercised to prevent the drive axle joints from being over-extended. When either end of the shaft is disconnected, over-extension of the joint could result in separation of the internal components and possible joint failure. Drive axle joint boot protectors should be used any time service is performed on or near the drive axles. Failure to observe this can result in interior joint or boot damage and possible joint failure.

5. Remove the tire and wheel assembly.

6. Remove the brake line bracket.

7. Scribe the strut flange.

Important: The steering knuckle must be supported in order to prevent axle joint over-extension.

8. Remove the bolts and the nuts attaching the strut to the steering knuckle.

Notice: Care should be taken to avoid scratching or cracking the spring coating when handling the front suspension coil spring. Damage can cause premature failure.

9. Remove the strut from the Vehicle.

Installation Procedure

Notice: Care should be taken to avoid scratching or cracking the spring coating when handling the front suspension coil spring. Damage can cause premature failure.

1. Install the strut into position and install the nuts and one bolt connecting the strut to the body. Hand tighten the nuts and the bolt.

2. Align the steering knuckle with the strut flange scribe mark and install the bolts and nuts. Tighten the nuts to 180 Nm (133 ft. lbs.).

3. Tighten the nuts and bolt attaching the top of the strut to the body. Tighten the nuts to 25 Nm (18 ft. lbs.).

Tighten the bolt to 25 Nm (18 ft. lbs.).

4. Install the brake line bracket.

5. Install the tire and wheel assembly.

6. Inspect the front wheel alignment.

FRONT SHOCKS


There are three bolts under the hood, then two bolts at the bottom of the strut assembly holding it to the steering knuckle. You may have another bolt holding the brake hose to the strut.

After the strut assembly is out, you MUST use a spring compressor to hold the springs before removing the top bearing nut. DON'T try this without one, you can be seriously injured!
