In the past, replacing struts required specialized tools to compress, remove and transfer the spring. Our new strut and spring assemblies make this job much simpler for the do it yourself mechanic. This part comes pre-assembled. Jack up and support the vehicle with jack stands. Remove the wheel. Unbolt the top mounts and the bottom from the suspension and replace the whole unit. The large bottom bolts usually require an impact wrench and socket for removal. When reassembling, be sure to torque all nuts and bolts to their proper specifications. Do not use impact tools when reassembling.

good struts
Just got these in today, easy to install and for that bottom bolt that you curse just heat it with a torch for about 30 seconds and it will spin right off with your air impact tool. Much smoother ride.

quick ship.

Good struts
I put these struts in for my 1997 sunfire. Pretty easy to install with handtools. Prepare to curse at the bottom bolt though. Overall, it rides smoother and is alot better on bumps.

how do I know that the strut is bad when it has a spring as well as a shock? I hear clunking but nothing else in the vicinity seems to be worn or damaged.

BEST ANSWER: The price from 1A Auto for the strut and spring assembly is so affordable, that it doesn't make much sense to go crazy trying to figure out, whether it is the spring or the strut that is bad . I replaced mine about four months ago and I have 0 complaints. It is also a much easier job to replace the whole spring and strut assembly, rather than having to decompress the spring to separate them.
