You may want to go to a car parts store, or book store, and get a repair manual for your car. They cost about $16.00 Or, go to a Public Library.

-Again, there are no good manuals for this car, only older models, not the 1990-92.

Anyways, you will need to rent a spring compressor from Autozone or the like, they will usually refund you when you bring it back. Jack the car and remove the tire on the side you want to start. Compress the spring with your new tool so it doesn't take off when you detach the strut. You will need to remove the bolts connecting the strut to the wheel hub. I believe they are either 14mm or 16mm and there are two of them. Then remove the top nut of the strut. You will need to pop the hood to gain access. It's the one in the center of the housing on the strut tower. The strut should pull out now. Keep the spring compressed until you have the new one back in place. It really doesn't take too long. Good luck!

BIG JOB and you need to have the front end aligned before you drive it. TAke it to a garage.

After some negotiation, I was able to get a Nissan dealer to replace them for about $600, including parts and labor.

It has shocks in the rear I believe. Not struts. Struts are in front.
