Strut Replacement
I need to replace front struts on my 1995 Eagle Vision TSI
I never replaced struts before. I understand there is a special
spring compressor tool for this job. can you rent this tool at most
local rental shops, and do you need a lift to do this job?
I'd appreciate any reply
thanks[/size]

yes there is a tool that you can rent from your local parts house. But in all honesty for someone who has never replaced struts before i recommend that you take your car to a local shop and let them replace it for you. If the spring comes off this tool you could seriously injure yourself or maybe also get killed.

Yes, I heard you have to use the compressor tool carefully, so it dosent become a flying missile. so do you mean I would'nt need a
lift for this job. thanks alot for the reply

RE: Strut Replacement
Check with your parts suppliers to see if they have a complete assembly. On some of them you can buy them complete with spring. Then it is remove and replace.

Being way2old is why I need help from younger minds.

That would be great! All of the strut kits I saw online, had no spring attached. but I'll check with local advance auto.
Thanks alot for the reply,,, andyou don't get old ,, you just get wise

RE: Strut Replacement
Hello,These shocks are definitely a little bit better than oem, although I am told by guys at all the shops that they are made far better than oem. If you want a stiffer ride, definitely go with tokico, or another adjustable performance shock.Furnace Replacement
