    Default Strut your stuff !!

    I need to replace the rear struts and upper mount
    in my 1996 grand prix. It has the single fiberglass
    spring that runs from side to side. How hard is it to
    replace the struts and upper bumper in this car ?
    I had read that I need to use a special spring compressor
    on this fiberglass leaf spring is this true ?
    Because I don't have one of those.

    If anyone has ever worked on one of these cars can you
    tell me if I could somehow do it myself , with normal
    tools. I should also mention that there is no coil spring
    around the strut on this model. All I have to go by is a
    tiny Haynes manual, and it is not too good.

    Please help me to understand what to do.
    Thanks
    Mike

    You won't have to mess with the spring you mentioned.
