I am looking to replace the rear struts of my 97 Buick LeSabre Limited. The original struts are air adjustable. I am wondering if I can replace them with non-adjustable struts, as I intend to replace the springs as well.
If you're replacing the springs as well, you can put regular shocks/struts in. The springs on that car didn't offer full support as they were designed to work in conjunction with the support from the air struts also. Just make sure the new springs ar ... 1997 Buick LeSabre
I have a 2006 Impreza WRX STI. In the past four months I have been having problems with the rear lateral arm on the driver's side. I had the bolt to the lateral arm replaced three times and the rear strut replaced once. I have after market perrin lateral links, arms, and sway bar set up in the rear. The dealership and other mechanics have no idea what is causing it. Replacing the bolt to the lateral arm did not work, so I got the strut replaced. It ran well for awhile then yesterday it broke a

When I open the hood of my 2000 tdi beetle, and look at the upper front strut mounts, the cone around the strut bolt is loose on both sides. I had both struts replaced 2yrs ago. I just had my tires replaced and during the front end alignment, the mechanic said my strut mount on the passenger side was broken and needs repair to align it properly. I just looked and both of them from the under to hood and the upper cones are loose and free wheeling. they almost look either upside down or should be
The cone naturally has some clearance between the body. on the underside of what you see is a rubber bushing called the 'upper strut mount' these are a commonly replaced item. you need a spring compresser to get em out. ... 2000 Volkswagen Beetle

Yes...i seriously doubt that you got two defective units in a row. Without actually seeing it, I'm going to have to guess that you have a problem with the air supply. If you have the struts attached to the vehicles air pump, perhaps you should cons ... 1991 Cadillac DeVille
How do I replace the hood strut? I unscrewed both ends and removed the gas charged lift strut. I cannot get the one end of the strut off of the connecting piece from that I unscrewed from the car body. I have a replacement part from the store which looks similar. However, the removal instructions are different from the actual car. Supposedly there is a retaining clip, but I don't see it or I am not sure how to remove it.
If you dont see the clip then it justs pulls off. grab the mount with a pair of pliers and pull them apart ... 1994 Toyota Camry
I have a 1991 Lincoln Contenental and replaced the rear struts with conversion springs. The front still has the air suspension. The guy that replaced the rear struts unplugged the actuotor so no air is going to the front. I just need to locate the actuator to see if it will fill the front struts again.
It is on the strut along side the air spring you should be able to see the air line going to it and the connector. off white color ... 1991 Lincoln Continental
Dealer says that I need to replace right rear strut. Noise generated when going over a rough road. The dealer cost is 700.00. This sounds high to me. I've changed struts on vw's before. Is it possible to replace the struts myself? the car is a 2005 avalon xls.
This is in the realm of DIY but you will definitely need a spring compressor if this is in fact a strut-type assembly. The coil springs are under a great deal of tension and disassembling them without the compressor can be lethal.\012It is known that ... Toyota Avalon

Rear Strut I am purchasing a 1993 Jaguar XJ6. It has only one issue and I would like to fix it myself if possible. The rear passenger side tire is leaning, and I have been told that it is the rear strut that needs replaced. I have replaced struts on other cars but have been told it is more difficult on this car. Does anyone have any insight into the repair procedure for this issue?

Since my front struts were replace, I've had this rubbing sound coming from my front end. I've had my brakes and struts checked (by the shop that did the replacement) and have been told there's nothing wrong with my brakes or struts. What could be causing this annoying sound and should I be worried?
Rubbing noise or grinding? Is it louder going around corners? It sounds like it could be the wheel bearings, and if it is indeed the wheel bearings, then yes, you need to get them replaced asap. Wheel bearing failure can cause the wheel to come of ... 2002 Chevrolet TrailBlazer

I am having a "problem" with the struts on my 2006 Mazda Tribute. The rubber boot that covers the strut has broken loose on both side on the front and they make a rattling noise every time you hit a bump. This is driving my wife nuts. From what I can see that boot is a seperate piece from the strut and can be replaced. No mechanic seems think so. My question is two fold. Can the boot be replaced?what is supposed to keep the boot in place?
The boot protects and keeps the strut shaft clean if not totally destroyed silicone and zip ties should stop problem-to replace need to remove strut ... Cars & Trucks

Instructions for installing 2001 gs430 struts type Monroe Sensi-Trac front & rear. What all has to be removed. Would this also be a good time to replace the wheel bearings at 160K or is repairs unrelated? Any other items to do during strut replacement that this repair makes easy?
Be carefull , you will need spring compressor tools to do the job. The springs are compressed quite a bit and if you just undoo the top nut for the strut , you could kill yourself. Don't doo wheel bearings unless you know they are bad. ... 2001 Lexus Gs 430
