Yes.You need a strut compressor.Don`t loosen the big nut on top or you could get hurt.The strut has to come out in one piece then you mount it on a strut compressor to relieve the spring tension.Then loosen and remove the nut and the upper mount and install the new one.You will also have to have the alignment checked and adjusted if needed.Hope this helps.Good luck.
buy a radiator flush kit, some prestone flush additive, and even maybe a new thermostat, and a simple haynes manual for your auto. The manual will tell you where and how to change the thermostat, and how to drain the radiator, and how much radiator fluid you will need. The flush kit will instruct you where to put the flush fitting. Remove the thermo, flush the motor, install new thermo and gasket. Add radiator fluid, done. This should solve your over heating probs. Don't let it over heat! You can cause major probs then.
You could always take it to a shop and pay the $200 to do it for you. My way would cost you less than $50.
This sounds like an extensive repair. Without seeing a picture of the hole its kinda hard to tell. Most of your shocks will need a mounting kit anyway. I think if you were going to do this yourself you would be best to go ahead and buy the shock and mounting kit and put it in yourself and if that turns out to be a no go for you at least you have the parts to send along with the car to the repair shop (hence saving you some bucks there anyway). Good luck to you hope this helps.
