They are thoes long things that reach from inside the wheels to inside the engine compartment. It takes a lot of special tools and alignment machine to change them. I somewhat agree.They ARE behind the front wheels.Removal from the car is simple. Open the hood and remove the wheel.There are 2 big bolts 13/16 or 15/16 wrench I cant remember which, just put a mark so you can put it back in the same place.Take those two big nuts off, knock the bolts out with a punch or screw driver careful not to hurt the rubber on that CV axel when the second bolt comes out. Now,on top under the hood there are 2 little screws and one little nut on the strut tower. Remove them and it will come off. On these z24's there is no cast or camber ajustment.Only toe in and toe out. But you wont be taking the tie rod ends off or loose. Now to replace the struts, you will need a strut spring compressor and if you have never done or seen this done you SHOULD get someone to help,because you could be injured.
