Just bought a spring compressor to do this job.
only special tool necessary here and pretty much the same method on all

Front shocks replacement (Mac Pherson).
To give an idea of the job if you want to do it yourself or if a pro do it
it's just to give an idea i'm not a pro.
Only special tool needed is a spring compressor.
This job must be done with the hands and the brain.
There is a very big tension on the spring once compressed.
Compression must be equally distributed on the two compressors and they
must be positionned in a symetrical way .
old strut vs. new strut
I changed the struts on my 2000 Maxima because one of them had completely
failed. This was the good one which still had oil in it; the bad one made
horrible scratching noises and clanked around.
Struts can sometimes be a little scary. That is unless you have the right
equipment. They are really pretty simple for the most part. However be
sure to use a spring compressor. Here is an example on a Honda. Other
vehicles will be basically the same

After posting the last video on replacing struts I thought I would post
this one next. I shot this along with the rest of the Accord front end
work that I did last fall. A couple of things are different, the most
obvious is that the springs are a much smaller diameter so you really need
to be careful when you work with these since the spring compressor doesn't
have as much to grab hold of. Second, when you install the struts back on
the car care must be taken to get the notch on the strut lined up with the
wishbone, if you don't do this the upper wishbone bolt will not go in since
it has to fit in a groove on the back of the strut.
For the second time I've shown you that I tighten the lower wishbone bolt
with the car off of the ground, the fact is I shouldn't do this since I'm
told it may ruin the bushing that goes through the lower control arm. I
believe this to be possible but I have not experienced any problems doing
it this way. For me it just seems like a pain in the butt to try and reach
around the tire after I've put the wheel back on. But for those of you
that like to point out my faults here is my excuse for not doing it the

Astra G - amortyzator przedni Delphi 99` vs KYB 11`
Porównanie starego amortyzatora Delphi z roku 99` z nowym Kayaba 11`.
Delphi - używając niewiele siły amortyzator można wcisnąć, cofa się
ale nie jest to prawidłowa praca.
Kayaba - trzeba użyć naprawdę dużo siły aby wcisnąć, wysuwa się
także szybciej niż stary delphi.
