How do you change the rear shocks struts on a 1997 geo prisim?
Please see my other answers, as they are pretty much the same for u as they are for them.
The 4Runner doesn't have struts; it has coil-over shocks in front. After removing the old shocks a spring compressor is required to remove the springs and install them on the new shocks. Take it to a front end shop that has the proper compressor and tools; it's very dangerous if you don't have good equipment and experience. The rear shocks are easy to replace by yourself.
In a 1997 Chevy Cavalier what would cause the right rear section by the tire makes a loud clunking sound when hitting a bump?
Check the shocks and the suspension components. You might have a bad bushing on the sway bar, shock or elsewhere. The 1997 Chevy Cavalier has struts instead of shocks in the rear-end, so you would need to replace those. Also while replacing the struts you might want to consider alingment for both the rear and front because if the car has been making this sound for a long period of time it will be out…
