How do you change shocks and struts on a 1989 Lincoln mark VII?
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.
