Shocks/Struts Install help

To take off the struts all I have to do is remove the strut nut and everything should come out right?

Thumbs up

Yes,but listen you have to jack up the front of the car and support the front lower control arm. The spring will pop out when removing the upper strut nut. Put the front on jack stands and use the floor jack to support the control arm. Shoot off the nut first, then lower the jack slowly. Also disconnect the tie rod ends. BE CAREFUL THE FRONT IS UNDER A LOAD OF PRESSURE ESPECIALLY THE FRONT SPRINGS!!. Good Luck,

Matt
