As long as you are handy with tools and some what good with cars this repair is not that hard. Basically you need to get each wheel to hang freely (all at one or one at a time) to allow the shock/strut to be fully open or un conpressed. For the rear remove the trunk carpet and remove the bolt above the shock hump hold on to all old hardware. Next remove the bolt and nut on the bottom of the shock. Some rust pentraint works good here. Then remove the shock and install new. For the front Basically the same procedure. Open the hood and remove the 3 bolts holding in the shock assembly. Then remove the bottom bolt and relpace with new.
Yes it should have front struts and rear shocks.
All Chevrolet Celebrity's use struts in the front. As information they use shocks in the rear suspension.
Yes, one at each wheel
Yes, but you need to also change to stiffer springs.
No, they are different.
(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.
Jack up the car. Unscrew two bolts in the rear bearing arms, then unscrew the top bolts. You will need to take out the back of the rear seat in order to get to these. Then the shocks can be taken out and new installed.
if you adjust the shocks.

According to my Chilton's Auto Repair Manual : For a 1989 Lincoln Town Car ( which has the 302 cubic inch / 5.0 litre V8 engine , the 8th " character " of the VIN being an " F " ) ( with engine oil filter change , 5.0 U.S. quarts )

Not my instructions - but I have used them, and they are correct (can't verify strut part # though). http://gallery.sanitylapse.com/v/supra/Hatch+Strut+Install+5-29-05/DSC_2385.jpg.html

These struts are to be replaced with vehicle sitting on the ground with tires on. If you raise the vehicle and disconnect the strut hardware, the large spring can fly out and jam in between the tire and body and possibly cause injury. If you want to do it yourself, remove 2 covers that resemble little hats underneath hood. You will see a strut shaft nut and jounce bumper assembly, depending on what your model has. Recommend to purchase Haynes GM Repair Manual for this repair as it has good pictures. Manual is approx. $15.00 and this is a more complicated replacement than just regular shocks on older models. You probably will have to rent a strut cartridge nut socket, don't buy one, as I believe they're very expensive ($65.00 or so), unless you plan on doing this for a living. The manufacturers (Gabriel or Monroe) recommend changing struts or shocks every 30,000 miles, and this is a worthwhile repair as it can be a great tire saver. Hope this helps.
It is possible that a Mustang transmission will fit in a Lincoln Mark VII. It is likely that the clutch plate and the pilot bearing will have to be changed.
