Did this video help you?

Kelvin Yuan: Be careful with the top mount, as it controls the camber and caster. Even the assembling line did not pay attention to it, as I found in my 2012 Ford Escape. They just installed the two sides with the marker facing the same direction, and in fact they must be symmetrical.

Oz Media: Funny how that works, put a pipe on the end of a ratchet and it applies enough torque to break the bolt! Who'd a thunk it? Try heat next time, I've done dozens and dozens of these, never broken a bolt though. Surprising, most of your videos are very good.

Kip King: Just swapped out the front struts on the womans 2010 Merc Mariner (same thing) & was anticipating a bunch of broken bolts & difficulty with stuff coming off, but I had a cheap ass 1/2 inch impact & every bolt came off with no problem, even the nut on the stabilizer link w/o using the 5MM allen! Took 2 hrs from start to finish & was doing it in the townhouse parking lot. I impressed myself a little bit! Could do the whole thing in an hour now though! Video was very helpful though for preparing for the worst case scenario! At least I had every thing I needed & some extra but hey, gotter done!!!! Thanx!

Juan Carlos Martinez-Sanchez: Great video and good quality audio too. Please provide the exact dimensions of the two lower bolts and the M8 self-taping bolt.

madfiddler93: do we not need to torque the rod nut if using quick struts? the boxed directions say to consult the manual for that, but I can't find anything for it

Mark_in_MN: I just replaced the left front strut on my 2012 Ford Escape and I can't get the brake hose clip back on. I have tried pushing it by hand and pounding it with a hammer after putting a little oil on the mounting bracket. Any suggestions?

Thanks

Mark
