The strut must be compressed for mounting. Labor is approximately 2 hours. Not sure what labor costs in your area or if your shop will allow you to bring strut or require you to buy from them.

Struts run around $50.00. shop rate varies, Labor 1 hour. If the spring is damaged then the strut and spring with a strut bearing will run about 175.00

I have a 04 saab my pass wheel is leaning in. Why?


Have the alignment checked for a camber issue. Have you hit anything recently ( curb/pothole ) that may have caused this issue? Camber angles, if not in specification will cause tire wear and pulling. Most but not all vehicles have a provision for camber adjustment. Worst case scenerio is something is bent and may have to be replaced to correct your problem

Replace front drive axle


Probable front end suspension damage that has put the wheel alignment out . To need to replace the axle and rim indicates that the strut an lower support arm will also be bent. Have the front end inspected and a wheel alignment done

You may be able to correct camber at the top mounting plate on the mcphearson strut. Also make sure the strut is not bent at the bottom of the tube.

Piece that goes from rear brake drum to frame got bent. what is this part called and what does it do?


There are three, we'll call them bars, that go to the rear spindle on your century. The one that goes forward toward the rear door of the car is called a trailing arm. The other two which goe towards the center of the car are called lateral arms, and there is a front and rear. The rear lateral arm is usually the one that gets bent. These three arms position the lower end of the strut/spindle assembly, and if one or more are bent, your rear wheel alignment will be out of whack, and your car will drive funny and you will wear out your tires.

I was driving on the highway my car spun out of control, causing me to hit the back passenger rear tire up against a cement block on the highway. it looks like to me my tire is pushed up in the wheel hub...


There are a few things that can be bent or broken, I'll list them in order of most likley - the wheel is bent, strut assembly, lower locating arm, bearing hub. With-out knowing how to check them, you should have a Tech have a look.

My rear passanger side wheel is at a slight angle. Could this be a problem with the strut? A piece broke off while I was driving.


You need to check the rear suspension and see what is bent or broken.Trailing arm or front or rear lateral link.If you do not fix it or have it looked at you could loose your wheel.You will definitely wear your tire.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Need to replace steering arm on pass side on 1998


Your description leads me to believe that the spindle is bent. This is the piece that the tie rod attaches to near the wheel. Sometimes the tie rod is attached to a piece that attaches to the spindle which is rather intuitive. Just remove the tie rod end, unbolt the arm that attaches to the spindle and replace the arm. In this case the only special tool you'll need is a tie rod seperator.

If the arm is a part of the spindle and cannot be removed easily:

1) Put vehicle in park and safety brake on - chock the rear wheels
2) Lift passenger side front wheel and put on jack stands
3) Remove wheel and have a friend apply brake pressure
4) Loosen hub nut with appropriate socket (22 to 35mm)
You can purchase the socket from your local auto parts store
You'll need a large breaker bar, its torqued to about 100ft-lbs
5) Remove tie rod end with a tie rod/ball joint separator
This can also be purchased at your local auto parts store.
Some spindles are made with tie rod end permanantly attached
If it is removable, remove nut and drive the separator tool
between the tie rod and spindle using a large hammer.
It'll eventually break free from the spindle.
6) Remove the strut with a strut spring compressor tool
WARNING - THIS IS VERY DANGEROUS
This can be purchased at your local auto parts store.
Compress spring before removing lower bolts (2 of them).
The strut may be left on vehicle but the spring must be
compressed.
7) Remove caliper and break assembly
Loosen the two slide bolts that go through the caliper assembly
Remove caliper and breaks - let it hang by the tubing
8) Detach upper and lower ball joints with seperator tool as in #5
9) Finally remove the hub nut from #4
The spindle should slide off the axle
10) Repair or replace the spindle and put it all back together in
reverse order using new wheel bearings. Pack them with axle
grease if theyr'e not the sealed type.

NOTE: The tie rod end may need to be replaced also. The vehicle will need a front end allignment. Be sure to torque the hub nut to the manufacturers specifications - at least 75ft-lbs. You should probably replace the wheel bearings.
