I went to They have detailed instruction. I have a 98 Astro van. They didn't have the repair proceedure for 98. I checked an earlier year, 93 I think, and found the same setup. The problem I'm having is getting the old nut loose that holds the shock rod to the upper control arm. The only way to keep the rod from turning, is with a tiny wrench on the flat spot on the top of the rod. Not nearly enough leverage to loosen a nut that hasn't been off in a long time. I'm beginning to consider torch. Any ideas?

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.
