The strut tower is basicly a shock with suspension spring built in.Look behind your front tire and you will see a big spring with shock inside.That is the strut.

On a 2004 Dodge Intrepid, where is the strut tower located?


Open the hood, look in the back corners, just in front of the firewall. You will see two cylindrical shapes with three bolts coming out the top (possibly some other items attached). These house the tops of the front struts, called the strut towers. In the trunk are similar towers for the rear struts, but they are normally covered by the trunk liner and not as apparent.

Rusting strut towers


Yes but you will need a panel beater to do the job. The inner guard (the bit that carries the strut tower) is an integral part of the front of the car and needs to be cut away and another one welded into place. However if one is rusted out the other side may not be far behind so consider the possibility of junking the car (rust ) and getting another one as the repair cost may be more than what it is worth

1993 ford F150 the upper welded part is what I need to replace The strut bracket


Are you referring to the strut tower? Or the strut itself? If it's the tower, try a good salvage yard and find a proficient welder. If it's the strut, just buy a new one - welding a strut is not a real good idea.

85 ford tempo injector curcit has no power, checked curit with nod light and did not get a power response. cloud you try to help


  • There is a fuse panel located behind the left hand side of the instrument panel. Check to see if the fuel injector fuse is good. Should the fuse look good then it is time to get out the multi meter or test light and diagnose the harness. I have put up a diagram and a description of the the points to check. Sometimes it comes down to diagnosing. Check the fuse first.

  • Fusible link C, Fusible link G, Fusible link J, Fusible link P, Fusible link R supply power to the EFI system.

  1. Fuse Link A: At LH Strut Tower.
  2. Fuse Link B: At LH Strut Tower.

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.

How do I change the rear shock on my 1999 Dodge Neon?


  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the wheel and tire assembly.
  3. Unfasten the retainer(s), then remove the hydraulic flex hose bracket from the strut bracket. If equipped with ABS, the wheel speed sensor cable routing clip is also attached to the strut assembly bracket.
  1. Support the rear knuckle, suspension and brake components before removing the clevis bracket-to-knuckle attaching bolts. Do NOT allow the weight of the knuckle and related components hang without support when the strut is removed.


  2. WARNING The knuckle-to-strut attaching bolts are serrated and must not be turned during removal. Remove the nuts while holding the bolts stationary in the knuckle.
  1. Hold the bolt with a wrench, then unfasten the 2 clevis bracket nuts attaching the strut to the knuckle.
Fig. Fig. 2: Location of the knuckle-to-clevis bracket bolts


  1. Carefully lower the vehicle, then open the trunk. Access to the rear upper strut mount-to-strut tower attaching bolts is through the trunk of the car.
  2. If necessary, remove the carpet from the top of the strut tower. Then, remove the rubber dust shield from the top of the strut tower for easier access to the upper strut nuts.
  1. Loosen, but do not remove the 4 upper strut mounting nuts. Then, while supporting the strut assembly, fully remove the 4 strut mount attaching nuts.
  1. Remove the strut assembly from the knuckle by sliding the knuckle out of the clevis bracket on the strut, then remove it from the vehicle.
Carefully pull the strut assembly out of the vehicle
To install:
  1. Position the strut back into the vehicle with the 4 studs on the strut mount assembly through holes in the strut tower of the vehicle. Install the 4 strut mount-to-body attaching nuts onto the mount studs. Tighten the nuts to 25 ft. lbs. (34 Nm).
  2. Install the dust shield into the opening on top of the strut tower. Install the carpeting back on top of the rear strut tower.
  3. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  4. Install the knuckle into the clevis bracket on the strut assembly. Install the 2 clevis bracket-to-knuckle attaching bolts and nuts. Hold the bolts with a wrench while tightening the nuts to 70 ft. lbs. (95 Nm).
  5. Install the brake hose bracket to the strut bracket and secure with the retaining bolts. If equipped with ABS, the wheel speed sensor cable routing clip is also attached to the strut bracket.
  6. Install the wheel and tire assembly on the vehicle. Tighten the lug nuts evenly, in sequence, to 100 ft. lbs. (135 Nm).
  7. Carefully lower the vehicle.
  8. Have the toe checked and adjusted as necessary.
