Where are the top nuts located for the rear strut in an 04 ford taurus? And if you get a ready mount is a spring compressor necessary for removal or installation?


Let's look in the trunk for the nuts

Why would you buy new springs?

Take the struts to a garage,stand there
while they swap out the struts

1999 hyundai elantra how to replace rear struts


Rear struts usually have a large bolt on the bottom and 3 little bolts on top, to allow removal.
But then you need special spring compressor clamps to take the tension off the coil spring, so that the top of the strut can be safely removed. Careful, because the springs can be very dangerous.
You remove the top from the strut by undoing the large center nut. If the shaft turns with the nut, use a small wrench on the flats in the end of the shaft. Once the top is off, then you remove the spring. The strut tube then has a cap retaining the insert cartridge that needs to be removed and replaced with a new one. Reverse the rest.

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.

I am trying to replace my rear struts on a 2003 Toyota Camry. How do you access the top part of the strut assembly


Don't mess with struts unless you have a strut compression tool. You could get seriously injured. The nut is on top of the tower where the strut attaches.
