You can see from the opening on your rear fender above the rear tire. There is a gap between the body and your car's full frame(it's about 2.5-3" gap). To turn the nut you need to reach in on the passenger side shock with your left hand beside the coil spring through the frame( has a hole) with a wrench to the nut. You just get enough room to turn. Undo this nut first and do the bottom after. If the nut is very stubburn you might need to use a nut splitter. Good Luck it is doable!

How do you change the struts on a 1990 Mercury Grand Marquis?

(Licenced Technician) -- 1990 Mercury Grand Marquis does not use struts. It uses coil springs with separate shocks for the front and rear - except for some of the upscale trim Grand Marquis models, which run computer-controlled air suspension in the rear. Why are you wanting the "struts" changed? Are you having handling problems? Does the car sit low on one side? I have owned a 1991 Crown Vic and a 1989 Grand Marquis; front shocks are not really difficult (for me) to change; front coil springs are much more difficult. These cars were known for sometimes breaking coil springs. Unless you have a good solid garage floor, a couple of floor jacks, a complete set of line-up bars, and access to air tools, I would not recommend doing this job yourself. Hope this helps.
