I had no money your site says free help.
could not find an answer s I tried it out and ripped off part of my thumb on my dominant hand.
so dont try this without a spring compressor!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
now I cant use my hand for a month. but it is easy with a spring comp.
I can see how to do it but I wont say because someone else will try without the comp and I would feel bad. so have it done at a shop or with a helper. I had to go door to door for a ride to the er my phone was broken. quite the experience.

p.s. be careful whenever you do struts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Front strut replcement 2006 buick lacross


Jack up and support the vehicle on the sub frame. Remove the wheels. Unbolt the strut to knuckle bolts. Unbolt the strut mount from the strut tower (3 13mm head bolts) Remove the strut assembly.

It your replacing with "quick struts" reinstall and have the alignment done.

If your just replacing the strut you will need to bring the old strut assemblies to a shop to have the springs compressed. Once the springs are compressed the strut nut can be removed from the strut and the strut can be replaced.

DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REMOVE THE STRUT NUT FROM THE STRUT WITHOUT COMPRESSING THE SPRINGS. YOU WILL HURT YOURSELF.

How to change front struts of 1995 buick regal?


Go to Autozone and buy 2 front strut "cartridges". Then rent their strut cartridge installation tool from their loaner tool program. You can change both sides in about an hour without even jacking the car up-be sure to have a 15/16" wrench on hand for the nut and follow the directions that come with the loaner tool. Also spray a little penetrating oil on the nut a few days before you do the job. There is no reason to change the entire strut assembly unless something has failed.

How do i change the front struts on a1995 buick regal grand sport


Use a spring compressor to clamp the spring down (Be Careful). disconnect strut from lower control arm, and the 3 or 4 bolts under the hood ontop of the strut tower. Remove strut and spring, remove spring from strut (Still Compressed), put spring on new strut (Still Compressed), Install bolts under hood, aka strut tower, reconnect lower control arm, slowly uncompress the spring and make sure it seats properly. Take it an alignment shop to get your front end re-aligned.

Front end noise.


its a very good probability that is true. have the front end looked at any other wear such as sway bay link pins, lower ball joints, and especially tie rods. be prepared for the struts($300-450 depending on where youre at) and a really good idea to have an alignment done at the same time. cheers
