Front Strut Replacement - need advise
It is apparent that some parts for the 94-97 TB are now becoming more difficult to locate. O'R warehouses and stores are not stocking many parts like they used to even 6 months ago. Suspension parts are an example of this issue. Front struts are disappearing from stock in many areas. I was fortunate to locate two front struts for my 96 TB: Monroe Quick-Struts (they have the springs with them). My TB has 121,000 miles and the front struts seem fine - I can barely push down the front of the car. But, I decided to buy these struts because they are basically no longer available and I can get them at a discount.
My question is can you drop the old strut down and remove it from the suspension with the car just jacked up on the floor or do you need a lift to have enough room to fully remove the strut? Also, are their any strut removal instructions in the forum - I could not find them anywhere.
