There was a revision to the shocks which you'll see when you get the new ones. Squeeze the two retaining barbs in with a pair of pliers then twist and push rearward. On the right one you have the air dome in the way - it helps to have a buddy pull from the back while you release the barbs.

I have a GE front-loading washer. There is a horrible thumping noise as the drum turns. It is not constant - when I turn it by hand it seems to "thump" on every rotation of the drum. I ran it...

The thumping sound is a sure sign that the spider arms or the support arms that hold the wash drum are broken. It is a very expensive repair since you need to buy a replacement wash drum and spider arm assembly which almost cost as much as new washer. Get a few estimates before deciding whether to repair or replace the washer. Sorry.

Right side suspension strut broke off, drum fell down and gasket popped off. Have new strut, but whats best way to install

get your self a blanket and a mop
disconnect everything hoses drains plugs
lay out the blanket
put the machine on the blanket
take off the back 16 screws i believe
tip it on ints side to a 45 degree angle good side is the pivot side
now you can easily manipulate the bad strut.

bevery careful its a very heavy machine once tipped have a spotter

Something rolling inside the Drum

The rear half of the outer tub, with bearing is part # 131525500 and it looks like the back "spider" shaft is not available as a separate part from the inner drum. The "spider" shaft is most likely worn or damaged and in need of replacement also.
Then, there's that strut
Now, two pain in the back side hours of your labor and you've got your washer back, at more than what a new one would cost! Junk it and get a new larger capacity front loader.
Please don't rate this, as anything but the top rating will lower my score. I'm just giving you my honest opinion, that your machine is not economical to repair. I've owned a LG front loader for over 6 years and think they are the best, but there are other good front loaders out there also.

Broken shock and drum/seal leak

Power off the wall mains. Open up the machine panel to look interiors. See if any springs or shocks (known as dampers) have broken or come off. The dampers should not slide in & out freely, if they're defective, replace. Tighten all loose wires, which may have come loose, future probs, so you dont have to open up again.

Next level your machine, front legs way up, means your machine is tilting towards you. Then adjust accordingly so that u cannot shake the machine with both your hands. Lock the nuts, only the fronts legs are adjustable, for most machines. (will get back to u)

Kenmore spin cycle thumping noises

I just went through the same issue with my Kenmore front loading washing machine. I assumed (and a Sears repairman also told me) that it is the bearings. After I took the drum assembly out, I saw the rear drum broken and the inner tub hitting the outer tub. I ordered the outer drum assembly and only when I took the inner drum assembly out I realized the the "Spider" attached to the inner drum (and spindle) was broken. Entire drum assembly cost $417 + shipping and it may be cheaper in the long run to buy a new washer. I like the front loaders because they save water and good for the environment, but the US manufacturers have not yet perfected the technology like European manufacturers (or they don't want the machines to last too long just like cars). Anyway, I am looking into welding the spider tomorrow. If not will return the outer tub assembly and buy a top loading washer for $300!
