What I do to find out interchangeable parts for vehicles is I go to a part sight like rockauto punch in make and model etc. choose part, write down part number and then choose a different year and see if they are the same, a lot of the time a list will pop up of all the models and years the part will fit.

How do i remove rear coil spring on 2005 ford focus

Some autoparts stores lend tools as a courtesy. Things like spring compressors or strut compressors are needed. Some rear struts are made to come off as a unit with the coils made as part of the strut. Others are a 2 piece design and the coil and strut are individually replaced.

A note for the struts is that many need an alignment similar to the common front end alignment after you are done.

Mufflers- these usually come from the factory welded together. You need to allow for the lengths of the pipe and muffler in order to bolt them together after you saw off the old parts. IT HAS BEEN SAID THAT YOU CAN NOT GET A MUFFLER AS CHEAP AS A PROFESSIONAL SHOP CAN. Some are better off re-welded together instead of bolted. You would still have to buy U-bolts but a shop would just weld. Less parts less cost. Also dirt and rusty steel in an eye is not fun.

I need the Hub Bearing Mounting Bolts for 1997 Chevy Lumina LS

You can get those bolts in any scrapyard really cheap. If you are replacing only one strut, it may be better to get a used one as well otherwise the car may sit lopsided.(if you buy it with spring still on, it's quicker and easier to install too!!)
It likely interchanges with a lot of other GM models and should also be available at any scrapyard. You don't need part number, just tell them what you want and they will know. (it's their business)

Install shocks on a mazda miata

You will need a strut compressor if you have rear struts. You will need to remove the upper bolt inside hatch and one connected to axle. compress springs, and remove strut.
If this is regular shocks, lift car up by bumper, remove top and bottom bolts and replace.

Remove and install struts on 04 mazda 3

In the rear you DO NOT need a spring conpressor to remove struts. However in the front If your struts have the springs around them, then yes you definatly need a spring compressor. They sell and rent automatic spring compressors but they cost  a couple hundred bucks, but if I was you I would go to an auto parts store and get manually spring compressors they are $30-$50 and you hook them up to the springs and tighten them down with a drill or air gun. If you dont have a drill or air gun you could use a wrench of rachet but that will take forever.

Mazda 3 2004 front end struts shot

front end problems are not very uncommon becuse of the way we drive and where we drive, the front struts take quite a beating on the road thus giving us all the smooth comfortable painless noise less ride !!.

today the actual labor rate is soring and that is the reason for your big bills yet a reasonable price i would pay would be around $90 per side and the part will be around 200 for both front struts thus for a total of $400 for the front look into deals given by most auto speciality shops such as goodyear or pep boys but always ask for them to return your old parts to you this will be a good price around $400 - 450. for the front.

the noise you hear while you turn either to left or to the right while you are driving is bad front wheel bearings see if these are servicable bearings and if they are they can be cleaned and repacked with grease if they are sealed bearings then the bearings have to be replaced.
