Need Instructions To Remove Front Strut/shocks

Recommended Posts


Ok - my 99 RX300 officially sounds like an old school bus when I drive it - getting tons of rattles and lots of noise out of the front suspension. Sounds like the thing is actually falling apart, somewhere near the top mount. Any one else have this problem? Sounds like a hollow rattle... anyway, my next idea is to rip the thing out and put a new strut in, and a new top mount. Any suggestions?

What I really need is the procedure for removing the strut assembly from the car... looks like its just two large bolts on the bottom and the three on the top - is there any else I need to do?

Thanks for your help.

I'll be doing some in the near future for the first time. I'm attaching instructions in HTML format. You need spring compressors to get the coil springs off -- be careful here.
