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.

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.

Of course this is only the cartridge, you have to transfer the spring, and the top mount of the existing strut. You need a pair of coil spring compressor to do the job. The basic procedure to replace a strut is:
Remove the top nuts that secure the strut assembly to the frame mount inside the engine compartment. Do not remove the center nut.
Mark the lower strut mounting location on the hub for installation reference. The alignment will be close if the new strut is installed in the same position.
Remove the bolts that hold the strut assembly to the hub.
Remove the strut assembly from the vehicle.
Mark the top mount for installation reference. Using a side mounted spring compressor, compress the spring and remove the top nut and retaining washer. Pull strut assembly out from the bottom of spring.
Slide the new strut assembly up into the spring and reposition the top mount onto the spring in the same position that it was removed. Install the retaining washer and top nut.
Tighten the top nut to the manufacturer's specifications and carefully remove the spring compressor.
Place the strut assembly back into the vehicle.

Where is the fuel pump relay on a 1992 ford tempo?


The fuel pump relay is part of a large relay control unit called the IRCM (intagrated relay control module)

The module is about 6"x4"x2" and has gobs of wires (large retangular connector) coming out of it, the module is mounted on a bracket under the hood that is bolted to the top of the driver's side front strut tower, this module can be self tested by a dealer to see if it is bad, they seldom fail, I am a Ford dealer tech and have only replaced 2 in 20 years, Tempo does however have a fuel pump issue..

Front driver side suspension knock over bumps


See if you can bounce car and replicate the noise. If you can, you should be able to find it, and put your hand on it. Stabilizer bushing are a place to look, both at the lower a arm and on the frame. If you narrow it down to the strut, it will need to be replaced. The front trans mount also goes bad, try putting it in drive with your foot on the brake and give it some gas and see if the engine moves an excessive amount.

Hello can you please tell me the location of the strut mounts on a 1993 toyota previa all track


All strut mounts are found at the top of the strut assemblies. The mount is what holds the strut assembly to the vehicle.

Need to replace drivers side strut on 92 Toyota Previa,how much of lower dash to remove and how,got three screws by hood latch and int panel dimmer.Also took column collar off but still no access


The drivers side bolts can be accessed by pulling out the guage cluster and some of the ductwork. It's a tight fit but can be done. The passenger side on models without the airbag is accessed by going through the glove box. 
You can get to the top of the R Front shock tower bolts (14mm allen x 3) by removing the Airbag and glove box assemblies... there's barely enough room to get to those bolts. the deepest nut is going to be really hard to get out, but prevailed eventually. A time consuming project, but worth while.

As for the break lines: You don't have to take them apart if you try this trick.
First you need to remove the clips that hold the brake lines to the strut supports.

After the clips have been removed there should be enough play in the lines to shift the fittings out of the supports.

I use bolt cutters to make two cuts in the brake line supports about 1/4" apart. Remember to do the same to the new struts.

The brake line should just slide right out. When you put your new struts on the brake lines will slide in the slots you put in.

When you reasseble the brake lines to the supports the clip will hold the fitting tight even with the slot cut into the support.


Good luck and hope this helps.

Front spring


Raise and safely support the vehicle.
Remove the tire/wheel assembly.
Remove any brackets or sway bar endlinks that may be attached to the strut.
Remove upper strut mount bolts (NOT THE BIG ONE IN THE CENTER) Should be three bolts.
Remove two strut to knuckle bolts and remove the strut.
Using an external spring compressor tool compress the spring. FOLLOW THE TOOL MANUFACTURES INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY. COIL SPRINGS HOLD A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF POTENTIAL ENERGY AND CAN CAUSE VERY SERIOUS INJURY AND/OR DAMAGE IF THE TOOL IS USED INCORRECTLY.
Remove the top nut of the strut.
Remove the spring noting how the strut mount and other parts are oriented.
Remove the spring compressor.
Compress the new spring and install the new spring with the strut mount and other parts in the same orientation as it was removed.
Reinstall the top nut.
The rest is opposite of removal.

Fitting front shocks to a lucida 1994 diesel


PLEASE do not remove the center nut! what you have are called struts. The center nut is what holds the strut/spring together. removing the center nut will cause the strut to come apart with a force that could at worce kill you. Remove the 3 surrounding nuts then the two bolts at the bottom of the strut replace with new. You will have to have a front wheel allignment when done.
