How do I replace worn out front struts on a 98 Honda Accord; and how much would it cost me?
How do I replace worn out front MacPherson struts on a 98 Honda Accord; and how much would it cost me?Note; it seems I can use pre-assembled Monroe "Quick Struts"; would I still need the spring clamps if I us a quick-strut?
I've heard this could be potentially dangerous; how would I minimize danger?
Other things; would I need to bleed the brakes after? ( I assume yes) What's the basic idea behind that?
I would need an alignment I'm going to assume, from what I hear, I can't do that at home - but can I get it "semi-right" to drive it to the shop?
I have most of the tools available aside from a torque wrench. If I get a Monroe quick-strut, what other things would I replace? Any bushings/bearings/stuff that would be good to change at the same time?
Personal experience, Changing oil/fixing radiator leaks/doing basic maintenance on cars (brake pads/rotors, spark plugs/ distributor cap etc) The easy stuff basically. Honda quoted me at 800, and independent quoted me at 600. I can buy those quick-struts for 180 a pop.
