The front struts are held in by (3) nuts under the hood and (2) bolts that hold them to the wheel bearing knuckles. If you have access to a 1/2" pnuematic impact wrench the removal process will take about 5 minutes per strut. You will need a strut spring compression tool to compress the spring and remove the strut mount. I recommend replacing the strut mounts when you replace the struts as the are a wear item. Removing the nut that hold the strut to the strut mount will require a box wrench and a 6mm Allen wrench, put the box wrench on the nut and use the Allen wrench to turn the strut rod. This is also easily removed by the 1/2" pnuematic impact wrench.

Reassembly is the reverse of disassembly. You will need to have a wheel alignment performed when you are done as the cast/camber of you tires will be off and will cause severe tire wear.

Good Luck

How do you replace a 1999 Saturn sl camshaft Do you need to remove the head to do so?

NEED to??? No. But the question becomes, why are you replacing the camshaft? You should always replace the lifters when replacing the camshaft. A worn camshaft usually indicates that there will be other wear as well, but if you just want to squeeze a few more miles out of the engine, you might be able to get by with just replacing the cam and lifters.
