STRUTS ON A 98 FIREBIRD

1998 GMC Other

I am having trouble taking off the struts on the front tires. There seems to be a trick to actually getting to the top nut to disconnect the strut. Please Help.

UNTILL IT IS OUT OF THE CAR YOU WILL HAVE TOO TAKE THE TWO BOLTS OFF OF YOUR HUB THEN YOU WILL HAVE TWO RENT A SPRING COMPESSER TOOL AT YOUR LOCAL PARTS STORE THAT WILL TAKE PRESSURE OFF THE MAIN BOLT ON THE TOP OF YOUR STRUT MAKING IT EASIER TOO GET OFF YOU WILL NEED AN ALAN WRINCH ALONG WITH THE RIGHT SIZE WHRENCH TOO TAKE THIS OFF WITH THAT SHOUD HELP YOU OUT GOOD LUCK
