Jeffrey Davis Posted October 27, 2006 Share Posted October 27, 2006 This weekend I wanted to replace the front struts on my 98 LS 400. It has 127k and it seemed like a good time. I have replaced struts in the past and have good OTC spring compressor. Since the mechanic wanted 3 hrs. labor and marked up the struts by about $100 it seemed like a good way to kill time on Saturday and save about $300. I looked this up in the service manual and they had a procedure that was different from what I had done in the past (on other cars): Disconnecting the steering knuckle from the upper ball joint using a special service tool SST # 09610-20012. MY questions are, do I need to disconnect the steering knuckle and if so do I need the special service tool? Thanks in advance, Jeff Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
