You can check for any fluid leak around the shock.

Additional informationIf they are in need of replacing it is a good idea to also replace the upper strut mounts at the same time. I had one fail 5 months after replacing the struts, wasn't pretty.

I found it. It is 65 to 95 Foot Pounds of Torque for the bottom bolts.

To change the front strut it is not hard at all. Simply remove the tire, remove the break, remove the bottom bolts from the strut. Then remove the top bolt from the strut. Usually takes about 20-40 minutes to remove. Replacing is very simple as well. However, the front strut replacement will require a front-end alignment to be completed.

The 1993 Mercury Grand Marquis does not have front shocks. The Mercury has front struts. Compress the strut spring with a spring compressor. Remove the strut retaining bolts. Reverse the process to install the new front struts.
