Generally just disconnecting the struts (or shocks) will give you enough clearance to get it installed.
I recommend that you replace both though or it is likely it won't sit straight.

What is the name of the coil spring to purchse for Coil Spring for a Ford five hundred AWD


I would be taking this to a suspension specialist for good after market springs of the right length. The struts used may be too short in travel and that is what is holding the rear down or it may be just weak springs

I'm having a banging problem in the rear and I don't see anything hanging off. It's scarey.


Take a look at the rear coil springs, mounted on the rear struts. These have a bad tendancy to brake. Also note any fuid leaking from the strut itself. Struts can be purchased for this vehicle that already have new springs installed on them, eliminating the need for a spring compressor, as this is also a dangerous operation for an ameteur. Another thing to check is the rear stabilizer bar links. When these break, the make alot of banging noise. Good luck!

1997 Ford contour rear brake shoe replacment help.


Brake shoe removel:

Depress and turn the retainers for the hold-down springs and pins to remove them from each shoe. Slide the brake shoe assembly--including the shoes and springs--down so you can disengage the top ends of the shoes from the cylinder and tilt them to lift them past the retaining plate.

Unhook the lower retracting spring from the front brake shoe to disconnect it. Spread the shoes apart at the bottom to remove the adjusting screw, the screw's retracting spring and the adjuster lever. Remove the front brake shoe.

Pull the parking brake cable spring back with diagonal cutting pliers, grip the cable with the pliers without cutting it, unhook the cable from the parking brake lever and remove the rear brake shoe with the lever.

Disconnect the parking brake lever from the rear shoe by spreading the retaining clip with a screwdriver and removing the clip and its spring washer.
  • Step 4 Pull the parking brake cable spring back with diagonal cutting pliers, grip the cable with the pliers without cutting it, unhook the cable from the parking brake lever and remove the rear brake shoe with the lever.
  • Step 5 Disconnect the parking brake lever from the rear shoe by spreading the retaining clip with a screwdriver and removing the clip and its spring washer.

    How do i replace the rear spark plugsn a 2002 ford


    On the dual overhead cam 3.0 liter you must remove the upper intake plenum to access the right bank spark plugs and wires.
    On the single cam 3.0 liter I have seen guys remove the wiper cowel to gain access, but I just reach around the drivers side behind the throttle body.
