As far as tools go, your most important will be the spring compressor. You can pick up a pair from AdvanceAutoParts for about $40.
Also you can borrow a loan-a-tool from Autozone or Advance Auto. You pay a deposit for the spring compressor and you get your money back when you return the compressor.
I believe about $800 at least with struts only and plus $400 if you want to replace springs too.
I would say about $500 Max
I have a 97 Toyota Camry and was told it would be anywhere from $1000 to $1600 depending on whether I wanted top of the line struts or not.
At least replaced in pairs, fronts or rears would be recommended.
Struts can cost anywhere from $25 to $350 each, depending on the make, model, and size of your vehicle. Depending on which mechanic you go to, it can take about four to five hours to replace all of the struts on your vehicle. Mechanics charge an average of $50 to $120 per hour which would put your grand total at $100 to $1400 for the struts and anywhere from $200 to $$600 for labor.Ê
I recently brought my 2000 Toyota Camry in to a Midas shop for a quote to replace all 4 struts and I was quoted approximately $1,000. I was also told that a wheel alignment was highly recommended after the struts are replaced so that will cost about another $100 more or less. I would guess $1,000 for 4 struts is fairly standard.
The tools you would need to replace front brake pads are, a wrenche (size varies depending on vehicle type), a clamp tool, and brake pads.
The attic fan broke down and I'm wondering what tools I would need to replace the attic fan with a new attic fan?
If you have worn Struts on a vehicle, those can be replaced without replacing your springs. "Struts" and "Shocks" are often used interchangeably in language, however, I believe your vehicle is a front wheel drive with a double wishbone suspension. In this case, they would be more accurately referred to as "Struts". Just for reference. In either case, the answer is still, yes. Shocks/Struts can be replaced without replacing the springs as well.
Struts can be a very dangerous I would recomend you take your vehicle to a worthy mechanic. If you have the right tools to where you can compress the coil springs than it is a relatively easy job.
Cars would use shocks or struts in front but not both.
Struts work on the same principles as shocks do. They arre only there to stop the osolating motion after going over a bump.A lot of people replace their struts, but leave the old springs on them.This may be your problem.
I put quite a bit of mileage on my 2001 Kia Sportage and had to replace the timing belt at 100,000 miles. I have owned the car for 5 years. I was driving on the freeway doing 70 miles an hours when all the power shut down and the car would not start back up although it would crank. Hope that helps you.
Replace the whole rack, it would take speical tools to replace seals
struts are a wear and tear item - you can replace one at a time if you mostly drive on the freeway or non performance oriented - if you take your car to the track or drive aggressively around turns then you would like to replace both
Factory rear struts would be well-worn by now (if still original), so it could be a big factor. Also, the strut tower bushing is probably worn. I have fould the Neon rear springs may have lost a bit of their cushining ability too (separate damping/rebound from the struts themselves), but often not enough to replace those when changing a set of new struts.
If struts are included, I would guess $200-400.
i have a 2004 altima and have received quotes for the 2 front struts. one quote is as high as 300 dollars per side..parts, labor, tire balance and front end alignment. this quote is based upon Nissan parts, or what a Nissan dealership would charge to do it. the mechanic said it would be less..but he wouldn't say how much more less. 2nd quote is 115 per side..that's all they said-with the exception that you should replace all 4 at the same time(rolling eyes) You do not have to replace all four struts at once, but you shouldn't just do one at time either. Replace them in pairs if you can't do all four. Struts are around $200 each. I would not recommend having a Nissan dealer replace them because the labor alone is going to cost way too much money; have a local certified mechanic do it instead.
why would you want to,unless you want to replace it or wash it out. the fuel pump is accessed thru the right rear seat floor.
You can purchase the quick struts for ~$200 online, a little more at a local place like advance auto. It is a matter of replacing just a handful of bolts for each strut and is an easy task. I would imagine if a garage did it, they might want $350 for the rear and $400 for the front. The front struts are a little more expensive.
Just paid a little over $900 forfront struts. Was told that the control arm extensions were part of the replacement. Had this done at a new business and felt that they were all about giving me the business. I had tires replaced and they found that the front struts were leaking slightly. I think he was prospecting for a little more monthly for the holidays...
your alternater is most likely shot. if you replace it and the battery you should be good as new.
Your 2000 kia sportage would not accelerate and eventually went dead what could the problem be?
it should ,they are both the same engine,the only thing that would hesitate me would be the connection harness to sensors and computers.
What would cause the timing belt to break twice in 1 month on a 2000 Kia Sportage?
