Successfully replaced front struts and springs.

It's like driving a different car!

Had trouble hammering out one pinch bolt until I got angry enough at it. Had trouble inserting new struts until I got angry enough at them. My mechanic skills are fueled by rage and hard hardheadedness.


It took me most of the day to do. Now I've got a couple more projects. The driver's front link boots have leaked out all the grease. That'll need replacing. Passenger pinch bolt nut was pretty banged up so I just replaced it with a grade 8 nut. I'd like to replace that whole bolt sometime soon.

All in all it came apart real easily. Bullmobile is amazingly rust free for a 13 year old New England car.
